The Thackara Meetup 2019 was a wonderful experience overall and a unique opportunity to develop a better understanding of my personal-professional practice. After a week spending time with John and Kristi, the other meetupers, in Ganges and nature, and on my own, I was able to develop a more cohesive story to define my personal-professional practice and goals. I am forever grateful for this opportunity.
For me, the meet-up was truly life-changing; brilliant content, group company, accommodation, food and the waterfalls were to die for! John gave me the boost I needed and input from the group kickstarted a project so dear to my heart — thank you John!!
I genuinely enjoyed the every single moment I spent during the week. Thanks to not only the fantabulous Thackara team but also amazing talents from diverse backgrounds who all were absolutely lovely, I had a very productive week. It was just a right balance of fun & work time in the absolutely gorgeous environment, which contributed to the great creativity/ satisfaction.
John and Kristi, your house is an absolute dream! I felt so welcomed and comfortable. You allowed us to take everything at our own paces, and gave us access to some beautiful places around Ganges.
The mixture of one-to-ones and group conversations provided a loose but effective framework to help push my design practice forward. I'm coming away feeling refreshed, excited to work, and with a whole new set of amazing friends!
I was working on my first book and it was amazingly helpful to have the space (both mentally and physically) to concentrate on this whilst getting constructive input and advice from JT and other participants.
the perfect place to hide out and finish writing that thesis, project proposal, or book
Bright, spacious, homie and comfortable with vintage furniture and art/design books. Highly recommended if you want to see the real french countryside out of the touristic trails. Merci!
We used the place as working retreat to concentrate, to be together and to work. We enjoyed the relaxed feel of the area and the nice atmosphere of the house.
The apartment on the second floor has a very good size and we fit perfectly with 4 adults. It is like described, even better. Highly recommended!
