We live in uncertain times. The world around us is becoming more fluid. Structures and institutions are giving way to networks, connected and disconnected in an instant. The only thing that's certain is that nothing is quite certain. We live in a state of constant change, transition, and evolution.
Unsettled is for those who embrace uncertainty and value meaningful human connection. Who realize that feeling a little bit "unsettled" is a positive impulse for change, innovation, and exploration. Who believe that it's in times of transition, travel, and movement when we feel most alive, inspired, and receptive to the people and ideas that spark growth.
The Unsettled community itself consists of dreamers and doers, designers and developers, explorers and entrepreneurs. We are not a complacent group; we do not settle. In fact, we are a bit of a paradox. Our interests, skills, and life experiences are vastly different, and yet they bring us together in our common desire to learn from each other and improve our own lives.
At our core, we design experiences to connect, create and collaborate in the world's most inspiring environments. These retreats attract creatives (artists, designers, developers, filmmakers, and writers), entrepreneurs (from Silicon Valley to Santiago), and people of all backgrounds who are looking for the perfect mix of work, life, and travel.
For many of us, it's like finding a second home. So welcome home.
Every great journey starts with a question. And so a few years ago we asked ourselves a simple one: How might we design our lives more around experiences, and less around consumption?
We began hosting dinners, organizing wild sailing trips, and hosting the first coworking retreats for remote workers. The more experiences we were a part of, the more we began to understand what goes into them. And we believe great experiences, by definition, involve:
- Organization, with elements of unpredictability
- Structure, yet fluid enough for serendipity
- Leadership and community-driven culture
- Change that happens within us, but is inspired by the people, ideas, and environments around us.
Over time, we observed how all parts of our lives could be designed as an experience, and that’s when it dawned on us: where and how we live is a life-long experience, intrinsically tied to the structures of work, housing, and, most of all, community.
When you join Unsettled, you are choosing to spend a moment of your life in a community of people who live with intention. This is a community for those who strive to live up to the best version of themselves in every moment - to reflect on where they come from and to follow their purpose into the future.
We’re here to help you get the most out of those moments.
That's our story. Tell us yours...
