In 2023, we are reintroducing one of our hallmark programs - the Cabin Creator Residency at Neighborhood Zero (here are a few past iterations).
Each month, we will provide free housing for a creator to come live in a cabin in the beautiful Texas Hill Country for one month while equipped with blazing-fast WiFi, a sauna, a gym, and other world-class amenities and collaborators. Creators will have their own bedroom, bathroom, and space to work/create. See this video for more:
Applications for the July residency are due May 1st!
Creators are artists, developers, writers, dreamers, musicians, online knowledge workers, and makers who come to Cabin to explore and design things that have never been done before. You can work on whatever project is near and dear to your heart. The only limitations are the ones made by your imagination.
The goal of your application is to convince the Cabin community that you’re planning to create something awesome, that’s it.
Submitting a proposal couldn’t be easier. You can apply via Twitter or Instagram (you do not have to do both):
You can now create and upload a video (as a post or as a reel) on Instagram and tag @creatorcabins in the post and use #creatorcabins in the caption (Your profile must be public on Instagram for us to be able to see this submission). You must indicate which month you’re interested in doing the creator residency - if you do not indicate a month, we will assume you’re interested in the month that is coming up soonest at the time of your submission.
Write and share a thread on Twitter and tag @creatorcabins in the first tweet (Your profile must be public on Twitter for us to be able to see this thread). You must indicate which month you’re interested in doing the creator residency - if you do not indicate a month, we will assume you’re interested in the month that is coming up soonest at the time of your submission. Here is a sample thread from a previous submission:
We’ll gather threads and video submissions and coordinate a vote among Cabin members to determine which creator we select. Votes will be done on a platform called Snapshot - here is how a previous vote looked.
Any Cabin community member can vote, so long as they hold at least one ₡ABIN. ₡ABIN is what community members earn by referring residents and neighborhoods to Cabin’s network of neighborhoods.
Votes in Snapshot are done using a voting system called quadratic voting, which helps to dilute the voting power of individuals with a lot of ₡ABIN.
We’re excited to get this program rolling, so we are going to include March as part of this program, even though March is almost upon us! For months in April and beyond, we want to give creators as much lead time as possible to prepare for the travel they might have to do to get to Neighborhood Zero (located about 45 minutes by car from the Austin–Bergstrom International Airport).
For a residency beginning on March 1st, submissions are due by January 24th and we will vote as a community by January 31st.
For a residencies beginning on April 1st and beyond, submissions are due two months prior. For example, a residency beginning on May 1st is due on March 1st. The April residency applications are due February 15th. Community votes will happen about a week after submissions for the month arrive. Follow us on Twitter and on Instagram @creatorcabins to keep up to date with exact timelines.
