🌎 Regenerative Voyage  

--- more Hacker Sailing with Mitch Altman

The regenerative paradigm is the growing awareness that we must treat our economic, social and environmental systems as living ecologies and look at how we increase the 'aliveness' of these systems through our actions, this in contrast to the old colonial paradigm of conquer and extract wealth, the paradigm that has left our world and our souls depleated.

This June 10th-17th following EMF camp, Astralship is going on another intimate Hacker Sailing Voyage with Mitch Altman. At the ship in Snowdonia, we will go on a journey to explore the deep-tech and innovation that we need to support the regenerative paradigm. The crew will hack together, learn together, have fun in the Snowdonia spring-shine and work on innovating some new systems that might help keep our civilization going.

This is a private voyage for committed Astral pirates, hackers and makers. Let sail for a max-creative peak-performance deep-dive into Astralspace with Mitch. We're self-organising here using Matrix, Telegram and also email, so exactly what we'll get up to is also up to you, but you can imagine hardware and software hacking, visits to Tyddyn Teg Regenerative Farm and Engedi 2.0 - The historic Chapel where we'd like you to help us design a Solar punk Hackspace and Regenerative community Catalyst. Connection. Lightning talks, sharing skill, co-designing solutions.


"Our voyage will collectively be created by the synergy among all who join. We will all learn a lot. We will all make new friends. We will all grow. We will all leave with motivation, encouragement, and inspiration for moving forward in our lives."

--Mitch Altman

Where will we sail? - #unvoyage

The ship will sail where the crew takes it and your unique skills and contributions will ultimately decide where we get to. This is a call to get involved, share ideas, make proposals and help shape this voyage. We're adopting the one rule code used at Noisebridge, "Be excellent to each other! Here are some areas we might want to do some thing in, collectively or in groups.".

1. Sustainable Tech, Smart-Agriculture and Energy.

Planet Earth is going through a rough patch! We are alive at a most interesting time when soon perhaps the future viability of our species may be decided. It never too late to create, so let's live like the creators we were born to be and sail to manifest our most fun, creative and impactful ideas! If you have a project that can help our planet and species in a meaningful way, Astralship has resources to help you. Whether on this voyage or on the longer journey. You don't have to be a techie, you just have to care and want to develop yourself.

We have Tyddyn Teg organic farm just down the hill, and can arrange site visits. The farm has been involved in projects like the Weedinator (EMF Camp 2018) The farmers are interested in how to make farming more efficient using open source technology. Here's a film we made about the farm

2. Designing a Regenerative Hackspace

In many ways Hacker Culture is already Regenerative. We seek to share knowledge and skill with others in the community for the good of our ecosystem. How can we extend the knowledge sharing and help a small rural community with a unique culture and language skill up and start building solarpunk futures.

The Engedi 2.0 - Regenerative Catalyst project will contain a hackspace -- focused on Regenerative Technologies-- along side arts and community spaces for all. During the voyage we will organise talks and workshops to help design systems for this awesome project

3. Playing with VR

Astralship has plenty of space that we can use to play with VR.

We have a couple of HTC Vive sets. We could look at supporting the effort being made in Austria at the Ourverse Hackathon

🌍 Voyage Structure

Sailing involves the agile adjustment of sails to reach a destination. Here we're co-producing the voyage structure dynamically with our emerging crew. Getting us all to paradise island; an intense creative interactive-learning adventure that enriches us all.

Learn soldering and Arduino with Mitch

Everyone should know how to solder and some electronics skills. Early in the voyage Mitch will run some sessions sharing how to get started building projects with Arduinos and learning to solder. Mitch will be on hand as we hack new solutions together, when technical problems and questions arise.

There will be plenty of time to get to know all the crew, including time to chat to Mitch about soldering, electronics, projects, or any subject. Mitch has an enormous wealth of experience from inventing and manufacturing the open source TV-B-Gone to starting Noisebridge hackerspace and organising Hacker Trips To China.

Peak performance comes when mind, body and spirit are in optimal condition and regular breaks from soldering and staring at screens are a good idea

We can do yoga sessions or social evenings with music or just to get out and explore Snowdonia, with our without IoT devices we'll get out and find some magic spots in the mountains around. If you have a CB radio, bring that.


The official voyage is 10th to 17th June. There are also opportunities for hackers to come early to help set up or stay on to go deeper with Mitch and the crew. Drop us a line.

Cabin and Spaces

Cabin spaces are limited on Astralship. We’re looking to fill 8 Cabins (4 single, 4 double) for this voyage to the future. We may also add some Hammocks or other sleeping spaces. If you want to sail on this voyage, get your name on the roster early to avoid disappointment.

Day Trippers: Hackers from the local area will be invited to join us for day trips.

No experience necessary, only a love of technology and a desire to see human prosperity.


How much does it cost?

Astralship voyages do happen by magic, but there are physical costs and we need your contributions to make this happen. We don't want anyone who really wants to come to be unable to because of cost, and we hope that those who have some abundance will share what they can. Here are our suggested donations: Single Cabins for the week, including a wonderful selection of Vegan food prepared by our resident Chef, Β£450. Double cabins for 2: Β£600. Non-cabin spaces Β£250.

How is the food?

We'll make sure there are a few non-vegan options available -- though we know that everyone will thoroughly enjoy our vegan food offerings.

Can I cowork from the Astralship during the Voyage?

Yes. In fact, some people will be coworking. Teamup on with shared productivity hacks and optimise work, play, create.

I want to come, how do I get intouch?
