The NATV model is the first of its kind.
There are two parts of the NATV process:
1. The NATV interview series
2. The NATV village
First, we take some of the main materials used to build the homes -- lumber, plywood, and glass -- and create our own set-pieces out of them.
These set-pieces become an integral part of how the NATV interviews are conducted. Each set of completed interviews raises enough materials to build one NATV home.
2 “Mind Frame Interviews” =
enough wood + plywood for 1 NATV home
After the interviews, the set-pieces are disassembled and its materials are given back to the building team to create our homes.
Why do the interviews? NATV interview content helps build an audience for community initiatives that would otherwise receive less attention.
Our interviews invite conversation with extraordinary artists . Additionally, the NATV interviews invite conversation and collaboration with
All NATV interviews are, by nature, inventive and fun.
The end goal of all NATV content is to contribute to the expansion of our village.
The NATV village will be a supportive, consciously-designed community for people experiencing homelessness in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Our town location has yet to be confirmed.
We believe in the tiny home village model as a great step towards creating sustainable communities and eradicating state homelessness.
