1. Fill in and submit the form on the right hand column of this page.

2. We will send you an application assignment

3. Fill it out and send it back to us within twenty days.

4. After carefully reading your form we will invite you for a Skype chat or if you are near us an in person meeting.

5. If we think you are a good match for Knowmads, we will invite you to our “Welcome Home Workshop starting August 12th” (18 SEATS)

6. Finally, after joining our three day workshop you can make your final decision to join Tribe 12.  



What is it: It is a 3.5 day workshop- an important start and introduction to  your Knowmads year. The workshop is designed to do many things and hopefully answer these questions:

what is knowmads?, how do we learn?, how do we teach?, how do we grow together?… what will happen during  the year?,   who will be your future tribe mates?, is Knowmads the right thing for me to join?.

Dates: Starts the Evening of the 12th of August 2015 and ends in the morning of the 15th

Costs: 195EUR (the costs will  cover all your expenses: your stay, facilitation, food…)


While the Welcome Home Workshop is not obligatory, we highly recommend attending as it is a great opportunity to decide if Knowmads is a good fit for you. Also the 18 who do attend will be given priority to join the Tribal year. If you are unable to attend we can arragne meetings with staff or even potential tribe 12 students at a later date to see if it is a good match.
