The City of Eternal Spring. A stunning urban and cultural oasis, surrounded by one of the most diverse and ecologically rich countries on earth. Over the past decade, Medellín has become world-renown for its innovative and entrepreneurial spirit, and its remarkable transition from a cartel capital to one of the top destinations to live as an expat for its vibrant culture, thriving economy, and quality of life.

This August & September, we're inviting 20 people from creative and entrepreneurial backgrounds to live, work from, and explore Medellín together for one month at a time. This experience is designed to offer you an intentional break from your routine, and the space to find inspiration, build new relationships, and grow new ideas. A month with Unsettled is about embracing the unknown, and living the best version of yourself with an incredible community of peers while still being productive.
