BA)SE Land Project
Multi-Cultural Eco-Arts Community Project.
Who We Are…


We are a small group of diverse, creative and ecologically aware individuals who have been working together for several years now as a youth arts group working initially from our home town of Totnes, South Devon, U.K.

The idea originated from my work as initiator and co-ordinator of the Permaculture area at Glastonbury Festival of Performing Arts from 1991-2002, combined with co-creating the youth arts group BA)SE in Totnes. Our aim is to establish a permanent eco-arts community as a creative living initiative.

Lizi Jamal

Lizi JamalMy Vision: To initiate a multi-cultural, eco-arts community/village with the structure being based on sacred laws, of respect for nature, all beings, and permaculture principles ie; working with nature and not against her, earth care , people care and fair shares. A place where people, particularly young people can come to stay for periods of time to learn skills to enable them to live a more sustainable low impact life ... learning permaculture and survival skills, low impact building alongside creative arts, music and performance skills, celebrating spirituality, some counselling and non violent communication skills. Where young people can have the opportunity to learn from the wisdom of the elders. A community where all life is considered sacred, and where a baby can be born in love, and we can die in love. Where we celebrate transitions.

AlidasI have several names people have given me. But my given name at birth was Alida. This in Italian means "the little winged one". Although I'm no "angel" I love to "fly" travel around the world visiting other cultures and learning new and interesting things. some times I do my travelling in my room in Devon looking outside my window watching at the distance hill and fields that suround us...and I dream....

I dream of having my own family of beings...animals, humans and nature living together in harmony. Sharing what there is to share.

From an early age I was a natural dancer. I danced the Egyptian dance of the earth. Known in the west as "Belly dance" I was born in Egypt and grew up in an extended family untill war seperated us and we were strewn in several different continents. I was five when the first aunie and her familly left the 2clan" and life was never the same again... Read more about: Alidas
