  • Description


    Our place at the Island, is a space for for focalising creativity and amazing musical, dance and art events.

    The 1 hectare of land from above looks like an Island surrounded by a variety of Trees, Bush, Scrub and Rosehip. It is set in the countryside of South Bohemia near to the wonderful Sumava forest.

    I am a professional musician, videographer and artist involved in a variety of projects.

    The intention for the space is to use it as a studio for professional recording, artist residencies, events and non-profit local festivals.

    I have worked with my project Jono Heyes and the Mama Yeva Project music now for almost 15 years alongside musicians from more than 20 countries, performing at venues and festivals that promote ecological and social justice around the world. It is my dream to bring people together to experience incredible music and stage design.

    Over the summer 2022 there are many ongoing evolutions on the land.

    -Building of a Greenhouse, a little art Studio Geodome.
    -Water Storage.
    -Mobile Platforms for outdoor studio.
    -Sculpture Gardens.

    On top of these projects, the goal over the next years to surround the space with an amazing Orchard meets food forest. This would not be for sale but rather with the goal for providing food for people who stay in the space, sculpture gardens and art installations.

    Using permaculture these and other creative organic approachs to gardening that is for self sustaining

    For visitors there are plenty of beautiful spots in nature to visit nearby including the Sumava National Park where there are unique fauna and flora. In the midst of the sumava are also many old historical sites, celtics ruins, majestic castles such as Rabhi and Kaspersky Hory. Next to the property is a unique geological site where its possible to find crystals and other unique stones. The nearby village of Volyne has for a small town of 5000 inhabitants a rich underground cultural scene with regular concerts, film screenings and a wonderful little museum.

    We are most happy to meet people who have a creative spark, artistic, musical to come to our place and create on any these projects.

    Around the area there are many old historical sites, like the old Celtic Castle Obri Hrad, then also interesting and strange places connected to the communist times.

    Potentially it is possible. We only have 100GB a month, which is enough for personal use with a cheap o2 mobile simcard. We can help The Digital Nomad to acquire their own Simcard, the same to the one we have here. It costs 12 euros a month for 100GB
