THE STORY SO FAR
Connection, creativity and community in nature.
This is our unfolding story. Be a part of it...
Conceived in the biodiverse haven of Costa Rica's Corcovado Rainforest, the Corcovado Project began as a personal journey to inspire creative flourishing through nature. In 2016, Dave Erasmus ventured into the Sussex woods in England with a small cabin for shelter and the natural world for company. His year-long experiment living on- and -off grid produced a series of video journals and creative materials that became known as Version 1 of Corcovado (V1).
Version 2 (V2) has evolved into a global community based on the same principles: using nature as the basis for human connection and creativity. There is now a growing number of locations (CorcoHubs) and an expanding group of creative contributors (CorcoCreators) that make up the Corcovado Network. Alongside a second video series and other creative materials, V2 also includes a tour of established CorcoHubs in Europe as part of The Swirl.
Corcovado is brought to life by connecting physical spaces (CorcoHubs) with global hearts and minds (CorcoCreators) that embody the values of diversity, creativity and friendship in nature.
The Corcovado Network is a combination of physical spaces (CorcoHubs) and global minds (CorcoCreators) that represent the Corcovado values of creativity, community, sustainability and nature.
