CREATRESS on the road
Travel the world without money. Trade everything with creativity and design skills.


I want to find out, what design and creative skills are worth in different parts of the planet. Because I just finished art school, I have no money or financial back-up, so I trade for food and lodge and get some job experiences as well. Everything else like transport and miscaleanous things I will also trade for my work. To inspire other students, creators, artists and everybody else, I will document everything online on my platform. There is also the opertunity to exchance experiences.

In summary, what is your “Made on Coboat” project idea (max. 3 sentences)?

My "Made on CoBoat"-Project will be the Platform I want to create for sharing and get the information you need, to do something similar. Also I will resaerch the question, what design and creativity is worth it. It is possible to have some kind of Wiki oder Map to show the results. After the preparation I would like to start my self experiment right after we get to last habour.

How much of your project can you realistically achieve in 100 days if you will get the chance to stay on the Coboat?

I guess, if I start on the basic research and prepare my portfolio for travels before, I would concentrate on the online platform. I need to design it and fill it with the basics I allready know.

Will you complete this project on your own, or will you be working with a together with a team?

I hope I will find some body to work with, and to create something together or in exchange for something. If that is not possible I try to finish it on my own, to start the journey afterwards. I hope I can get some inpiration and tipps from professionals and maybe some contacts I could start with. That would be great.

Why should your project be chosen?

My project should be chosen, because of the holistic aproach of nomadism, design, experiment and online documentary. It is not my journey, with is the project, but the idea behind _ to forget about money, learn to trade your skills and myke some friends, in the best case.

What does this project mean to you?

This project is riping in my head since my last semester at art school. So it means a lot to me. It would be my first time without any money, not even a penny, but loaded with tools all kinds. This would be my biggest and hardest adventure. So the spirit I hope to get, jumps on others.

Why do you want to do this project?

I feel, that I need to take this challenge. Even if it means, I will fail grandiosely.
