The Bothy Project

Jeg mødte Bobby Niven, manden bag The Bothy Project, til en middag hos The New Craftsmen i forbindelse med  at{mine} delen af Blogger Tour London.

The Bothy Project er række små, off-grid mini hytter beliggende mere eller mindre afsides forskellige steder i Skotland. Tanken med hytter er, at skabe et slags åndehul for kunstnere, der har brug for at trække stikket for en stund, så deres kreativitet virkelig kan udfoldes.

I teorien ville en uge i en af de små hytter være helt ideelt, men uden Wi-Fi eller telefonforbindelse, ville jeg nok løbe tør tålmodighed. En ting, de fleste nok vil pege på, jeg ikke ejer dråben af. Et par dage med udsigt, tonsvis af Insta moments og brusebad i det fri – ville jeg dog bestemt ikke sige nej til.

 

I met Bobby Niven, the man behind The Bothy Project, at a dinner with The New Craftsmen while in London for the at{mine} part of the Blogger Tour. 

The Bothy Project is a network of small-scale, off-grid residence space in distinct and diverse locations around Scotland. The idea was to create breathing spaces for artists, who needs to pull the plug for a while, to get their creativity floating.

In theory a week in one of these small spaces would be great, but without Wi-Fi or phone connection, I would probably run out of patience very quickly. Something, most would probably point out, as a thing I really don’t own, patience that is. A couple of days with a great view, tons of Insta moments and showers out in the open – I certainly would appreciate though.
