OpenSourceHome is an arts event exploring the practical, creative and philosophical challenges of living in a bus, by geek nomadic artist Fee Plumley. Part Symposium, part installation and part live artwork featuring special guests Dario Vacirca, Emma Beech, Lubi Thomas, Jennifer Mills, Sean Williams, Thom Buchanan, Elliott Bledsoe, Sayraphim Lothian and Vicki Sowry.


In 2011 Fee Plumley sidelined her increasingly respectable career as a creative digital consultant to take up a new life as a bus-loving nomadic geek artist.

This winter Fee, and her beautiful big red bus #homeJames, will settle down to make temporary home in Adelaide CBD.

You are invited to join them and their special guests in a series of days and nights with a Nomad as they provide an insight into the practical, creative and philosophical challenges of reinventing both yourself and your home in a contemporary climate.

It should not go unsaid that none of this adventure would have been possible without the astonishing kindness of my Pozible crowdfunding campaign supportersOff-grid Energy, Jimmy and Craig at Roundabout CharterBridge8, the loving memory of James Mellor (my bus’ namesake) and all the friends, colleagues and random strangers who have offered me their hearts, minds, homes and, of course, cash. //
