Launch Event: Creative Communities Learning Lab

On 28 April we are launching our series of dynamic and accessible online learning modules for creative and cultural professionals around the world.

Join us on Wednesday 28 April for the launch event of the Creative Communities Learning Lab, a new series of online learning modules.

Creative Communities Learning Lab offers free, self-led online courses for hub leaders, artists, creative entrepreneurs and cultural professionals worldwide. The topics covered by the modules include managing digital communities, new ways to monetise creative work and strategies to develop original innovative online course content for creatives. 

The content is designed with specific input from creative hub leaders and their communities in Southeast Asia and the UK, and shares lessons and insights based on their stories of resilience and creative adaptations, but addresses a global audience.

Creative Communities Learning Lab is developed by the British Council in collaboration with Creative Friction (UK) and Makerspace Manila (PH). It also includes the valuable input of 17 creative hub leaders from Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam and the UK. Read more here.  

It is supported by the British Council's Creative Hubs for Good programme in Southeast Asia.
