Unless you're Kanye West, few people can afford jetting off to a private island to work on a creative project. However, those looking for some alone time and space to get inspired and make art are in luck. Creativity expert Fredrik Härén is offering fellow artists and innovative thinkers the chance to crash for a week on two of his three private islands.
In the past, Härén inspired creatives through motivational speeches and writing. This time, however, he wanted to provide something tangible. “I felt I wanted to give something back and do something that was tangible, different, and fun that would in itself inspire more ideas,” Härén told Fast Company of his project Ideas Island. Those interested send in applications explaining who they are and what idea they want to develop. If selected, they're given the chance to spend a week on one of Härén's two islands near Stockholm, Sweden. Ordinarily, Härén also offers his island near the Philippines, but since it was damaged by Typhoon Haiyan, it's closed right now. Though you have to pay for your own flight and food, your stay on the resort is totally free.
