❗ The Creator-in-Residence program is currenly on pause. The last creator cohort was in August 2023.
Free Creator Residency
Each month, we provide free housing for a creator to come live in a cabin in the beautiful Texas Hill Country for one month while equipped with blazing-fast WiFi, a sauna, a gym, and other world-class amenities and collaborators. Creators will have their own bedroom, en suite bathroom, and space to work/create.
Submitting a proposal couldn’t be easier. You can apply via Twitter or Instagram (you do not have to do both):
- Write and share a thread on Twitter and tag @cabindotcity in the first tweet (Your profile must be public on Twitter for us to be able to see this thread). You must indicate which month you’re interested in doing the creator residency - if you do not indicate a month, we will assume you’re interested in the month that is coming up soonest at the time of your submission.
- Here is a sample thread from a previous submission:
- You can now create and upload a video (as a post or as a reel) on Instagram and tag @cabindotcity in the post and use #cabindotcity in the caption (Your profile must be public on Instagram for us to be able to see this submission). You must indicate which month you’re interested in doing the creator residency - if you do not indicate a month, we will assume you’re interested in the month that is coming up soonest at the time of your submission.
- Example submission here.
- You can also apply privately by DMing us on Twitter or Instagram. We will keep your personal information private when the community decides a winner.
How Does Cabin’s Community Decide a Winner?
We gather threads and video submissions and coordinate a vote among Cabin members to determine which creator we select. Votes will be done on a platform called Snapshot - here is how a previous vote looked.
Any Cabin community member can vote, so long as they hold at least one ₡ABIN. ₡ABIN is what community members earn by referring residents and neighborhoods to Cabin’s network of neighborhoods.
Votes in Snapshot are done using a voting system called quadratic voting, which helps to dilute the voting power of individuals with a lot of ₡ABIN.
