La Bassa Mar is a self-organized project for and by us: trans*, inter, non-binary queer people, centering those impacted by racism. The aim is to create a space to share survival and resistance strategies, and to grow and thrive collectively and individually. We believe that access to a space where we can slow down, outside of a city, is important in order to regenerate, rethink, grow, connect with each other and find new ways of moving forward. Access to land, sea, space and time to rest is particularly difficult for those affected by intersectional discrimination and economic barriers.

La Bassa Mar is interested in hosting groups and events on a wide range of issues including (but not limited to) anti-racism and decolonization, prison abolition, transfeminism, health and wellness, sex work, sex and sexuality, sustainable gardening and permaculture, youth programmes, art and education. Our priority is to host collectives and groups, but we are also happy to welcome individual visitors. We have the amazing opportunity to use the space for at least the next 15 years, with the possibility of continuing. The house has a maximum capacity of 25 people and is surrounded by one and a half hectares of really old olive trees. There are people living on the property at La Bassa Mar who will welcome you, assist you with your questions and needs and guide you around the space.

We need your financial support to:

  • pay the electricity bills
  • complete the interior renovation
  • make the ground floor wheelchair accessible – we need to renovate the kitchen and toilets and build ramps
  • build an outside kitchen for larger groups
  • paint and furnish the space
  • buy materials to build outside areas for workshops
  • renew the soil, which has been treated with herbicides for over thirty years
  • build a pond for animals and insects to drink from
  • build a space for bicycles
  • renovate the electrical system in the house

We have started this project with private loans, but this has not been enough to cover all the needs of the space. With your support, we will be able to keep La Bassa Mar open and as accessible as possible, and provide the seminar and retreat space our communities need.

Donations in kind

As well as money to keep the space open, we also welcome donations in kind. We are especially looking for:

  • A large tent (to provide an outdoor workshop space that can withstand the wind and is easy to put up and take down).
  • Caravans or mobile homes in general to offer more accommodation
  • Mats and puzzle mats (needed for many types of workshops)
  • Small tents. Also sleeping bags, which are useful in all seasons (to accommodate more people, especially in summer)
  • A projector and screen (to allow groups to work on ongoing projects and show films)
  • Orange tree, salvia, laurel, roses, grape, mint, almond (due to the dry temperature we are looking for suitable plants and trees)
  • Organic fertilizer (to make this space as green as possible)
  • Books in different languages by BIPoC authors or relevant to our communities
  • Painting and drawing materials
  • Table tennis and equipment
  • Vacuum cleaner

If you are able to donate any of these items, please contact us!
