C-Hub: Creative Hub… Innovation in Creation

 

The C-Hub: Creative Hub… Innovation in Creation is a learning space giving youth the opportunity to improve their entrepreneurship competencies in specific creative economy industries chosen by youth themselves. This will allow them to create products that are creative and that they could generate income from.

The C-Hub is a learning space giving youth the opportunity to improve their entrepreneurship competencies the creative economy industries in order to create jobs for themselves and others.

We aim through this project to provide 20 vulnerable young women and men with the opportunities to develop their entrepreneurship competencies and their employability prospects utilizing a series of workshops consisting of a number of modules, assignments, practical workshops, coaching sessions and mentorship within the creative industries.

The project brings together these concepts/approaches to providing youth with a physical space where they will have the chance to learn new skills despite their academic level or achievement through learning by doing (experiential learning). These new competencies will focus on entrepreneurship in creative economy industries.

Project goals:
