Creative Co-working Hubs – “Made By Many” (MENA region /UK)
The aim of the programme is to seek out creative practitioners and cultural pioneers who are exploring the frontiers between culture, enterprise, social development and technology and are specifically involved or interested in the creation of co-working and collaboration spaces. The programme will connect them to experiences, opportunities and expertise from the UK and Europe within from within their own communities.
The British Council is looking for a small number of entrepreneurs, emergent leaders and innovators working in the Middle East* to take part in this new programme. We will support the group through six key development stages including:
• A Residency Lab (in Cairo,the last week of November) offering the opportunity to build skills and networks and to seed innovation. Specialists from the region and from Europe will help explore existing models of co-working and use a magazine format to map and explore the infrastructure that supports Hubs.
• Follow-up consultancy in-situ from one of the programme Specialist to support Hub development.
• Support to share ideas with key international and regional policy-makers and established sector leaders.
* Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq, Syria
