Call for pirates in & around Amsterdam to collaborate

Posted By admin admin / amsterdam / Geen reacties

The story of our Valparaíso started in 2013. On a 100 year-old canal boat the first journey towards a new life began. In the years that came, over 500 volunteers joined the project to be a part of rebuilding and transforming the old vessel into a self-sufficient stained glass studio and meeting spot for travelers and artists.


Now, the time has come to expand our ship-based community.


We are determined, with support from our homebase in the Netherlands, to equip a larger and seaworthy ship for an international journey of art, sustainability, connection, education, and technological innovation. This all comes together to promote an alternative and people-centric way of trading. One that we call the New Pirate Economy.


For us the key to creativity is collaboration

Our belief is that we all have something to share. Culture, experiences, abilities and knowledge are priceless in our philosophy.
