Our new Terms of Service make it easier to get funded on Gratipay.

CHT is an all-year desert hackbase, an open lab for technology, theory and art you can live in and help construct, in Lanzarote (Canary Islands), easily reachable by inexpensive flights from anywhere in Europe.

The donations / membership system gives the base neccesary upfront liquidity to invest into planned goals for 2015. That is, we need to raise ~30.000€, buy land, and buy + build renewable power, water systems, etc.

See for all information about the project plans, or contact for more details. Other ways of contributing are also possible (Bitcoin, Paypal, IBAN) and every sum is very welcome.

If you pledge non-anonymously (Tweet to @chtotalism or send an email notifying), your Gratipay tips here can count for covering the expenses of your future stay at the base. A tip of $6/week is suggested for future residents.

Thanks for your support!

Hackbases are open infrastructure for experimental living, techology research & development, building, theory, open source software, recording music, and art. The focus is to run on a minimum budget, so people don't need to work for corporations if they feel they need to work on something else.

Base #1 was a house, founded December 2011, ended June 2014. Hosted 120+ people. Season III: >5 average and >15 top

Base #2 is a permanent open liveable hacker camp and experimental construction site. Focus: stop renting and paying utilities -> buy land and invest into off-grid, self-sustainable infrastructure.
