HomeBase Project (HB) is a nomadic artist-run-residency and research program devoted to the exploration of the notion of 'home' and to the creation of new platforms, models and tools for communal artistic hosting in cities. Operating at the axis of contemporary art, social innovation and meaningful urban change, HomeBase seeks to challenge the role artist play in shaping their surrounding, opening new possibilities for artistic, educational, cultural communal and civic engagement in everyday urban life.
HomeBase Project was founded in 2006 in Brooklyn NYC by artist Anat Litwin and has evolved into an immersive work of art through collaboration with team members, diverse communities of artists, local residents, educators, urban planners, municipal facilitators and social change agents. Since it's foundation the project has embarked on a decade long journey east, inhabiting buildings in changing urban neighbourhoods in New York, Berlin, Jerusalem and Saitama,
transforming vacant residential spaces into temporary artistic homes for critical cross-cultural exchange. HomeBase is currently the subject of Academic Research on the topic of Artistic Hosting and Urban Planning, and is in the process of expanding into a on-line cultural hosting platform.
