Creative hubs play a vital role in supporting the self-sufficiency and independence of makers of cultural and media productions. As ‘convenors of creatives,’ hubs serve local communities and connect creative practitioners. This toolkit is part of Creative Hubs Academy, a global partnership project of Nesta, Hivos and British Council, that supports creative hub leaders to sustain and grow their hubs.
Creative Hubs Academy was co-designed over a two-year period with more than 100 hub leaders from across three continents. It uses practical tools and approaches, as well as face-to-face workshops and supportive coaching, to upskill creative hub leaders.
