We're offering a FREE Unsettled trip to Medellin.
(Yep. You read that right.)

Why Would We Do That?

Because we’ve always wanted to give a retreat away, and what better time than the holidays to share the Unsettled experience with someone who really needs it?  

This isn’t a vacation; It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience for someone who needs to shake things up, turn things around, set goals for the new year, make meaningful connections, and collaborate with an incredible community of like-minded entrepreneurs, freelancers, creatives, and people who choose to live a less ordinary life.

Our community is made up of dozens of nationalities, and even more professional backgrounds, so we believe a diverse and inclusive community is not only essential; it’s what defines us. Our fundamental principle of contribution and participation is what brings our community together, and we want you to experience all this in the new year.

So, we're offering a free Unsettled: Medellin retreat in 2018 (i.e. waiving our program fee), plus up to US$800 towards a flight as part of the giveaway.

We’re currently hosting two retreats in Medellin (January and February), and we’ll likely be announcing two more months in Medellin in late 2018.

If you feel you can demonstrate a true commitment to bringing something unique to our Unsettled experience in Colombia, this is for you. This could be in the form of a structured workshop, a poetry slam, a salsa lesson, a lecture, a skill to share, or more. This is entirely up to you.


Unsettled is a community for those who embrace the unknown and value meaningful human connection. Who believe that feeling a little bit "unsettled" is a positive impulse for change, innovation, and exploration.

Our 30-day coworking retreats are designed to take your work, life, and adventures beyond traditional borders. When you join us in one of our handpicked locations, you get everything you need to be connected, comfortable, and collaborative: private accommodation, shared workspace, local guide, events, and an immersive community experience.


Who should apply?

First up, anyone 18 or older. We don’t care where you've been, where you went to school, or what degrees you have. But we do care if you are:

A natural leader, mobilizer, and community builder. You are someone who seeks to live more intentionally, and guide people into the unknown -- be it spiritually, physically, emotionally, or mentally. You thrive in new environments, crave diversity, alternative perspectives, new experiences, and living life in the moment.

You are most inspired by deep conversations, unknown adventures and cultural rendez-vous. You are seeking an intentional period of deep reflection and are looking to answer that scary, big question of “What’s next?”

You believe life is a process more than a destination, and that it's the constant journey of growth and discovery that makes this a wonderful life.



To enter, go on our Facebook page and submit the following;

  1. Share a photo of your most ‘Unsettled”’ moment on <this post>. In the comments, tell us its story, and then answer this question: “What unique value will you bring to other participants on this experience in Medellin?”

  2. Encourage your friends and family to help you be part of this exceptional month in Colombia with us by interacting with your photo and comment on this post.

The top three most compelling entries with the most votes will be shortlisted and interviewed for the grand prize of a free Unsettled experience in Medellin, plus up to $800 towards airfare.

Competition ends December 22nd, 2017, at 23:59 GMT.
