Creative Hubs Academy

Supporting the development of global creative infrastructure for Nesta

Creative Hubs Academy, designing an experience to activate hub leaders

Creative hubs – whether physical or virtual – are spaces for creative and social entrepreneurs to connect and support one another while developing their businesses in a nurturing environment. For the past 15 months, we’ve been developing a new learning programme for leaders and convenors of the creative hubs that serve communities in the fields of creative, digital and social innovation.

The workshop enabled me to see opportunities to grow and scale up, focusing on key activities that hit our purpose, not to think too broadly and understand that impact is being done in smaller pieces
