About Creative Hubs

A creative hub is an infrastructure or venue that uses a part of its leasable or available space for networking, organisational and business development to the cultural and creative sectors. Many co-working spaces in the creative sector refer to themselves as “creative hubs”.

By facilitating co-creation, Creative hubs can help to make out the most of the sharing economy. In some countries, creative hubs also provide valuable solutions to the high rates of youth unemployment by providing not only an inspiring working environment and useful contacts but also to provide an innovative business environment for cultural and creative start-ups. The increasing attractiveness of the concept of creative hubs in the EU can help breathe new life into declined industrial areas, enhance tourism and investment, provide educational opportunities as well as cultural and creative spaces. The project also set up some business support measures as well as a peer-to-peer hubs exchange programme to enhance concrete project development and cross-country learning.
