/// Always wanted to plan a short or long round-the-world trip? While most travel guides are aimed at a more general travel, we’ll talk practically about the nuts and bolts of how to plan a round-the-world trip to other countries to visit their artists, musicians, hackers, chefs, graffiti writers, squats, alternative spaces for collaboration, shared meals, adventures and more. We’ll break down developing a flexible itinerary, how much money you need, how to connect with other creative people, the nuts and bolts of passports, visas, flights, accessing money, not being arrested, how to live out of a backpack (and what should be in it), how to bring or source art materials and develop projects, how to sleep for free or cheap, and how to stay connected while moving around the world. ///

He is Creative Director of Hidden City Philadelphia and a curatorial member of Little Berlin art space. Tusman’s projects straddle the intersection of ideas that are socially-based, urban in nature and that combine unconventional practices with traditional visual art media. Tusman spent 2011 traveling around the world and visited artists, squats, pirate radio stations, street kitchens, communes, collectives and more in 25 countries.
