The creative learning space that I will present is Impact HUB Bucharest. It is a place that I have visited many times and I am also a member. It was been a big support in my transition from corporate to freelancing, from marketing to educational trainings.
Impact HUB Bucharest is part of a global network of connected communities that support collaborative ventures. They offer a great place where you can find all the tools for grow, collaborative learning and innovation. The people that work on their business from the Impact HUB space are from each domain of activity, creative and focused on being part of a business or NGO that has sustainable impact.
Here are the main points about Impact HUB Bucharest:
: The members are working on various projects, starting from a business idea and the incubation period until international ventures, creating new products and NGOs. The projects here are mainly based on the needs of entrepreneurs, freelancers and people that are in or preparing for a career shift.
Interests: People generate the ideas of the projects. These are based on their passion and on needs that they see in the environment. The goal is to achieve social impact and to help the global environment. There is also a platform where the members can discuss, share ideas and find on their own or with the support of the hosts ideas for projects and they can receive feedback.
Learning Community: There is a constant exchange of information. You can go and ask another member to give you some information on something you want to learn, you can have a team that you work with and learn together, you can ask a person like a mentor or you can ask for the support of the international network. While you are assimilating new information through meetings, online and events, you also become a teacher in the sense that you help others learn from your experience and you support them. It’s a complete circuit.
Values: People are very nice to each other and supportive. There is a clear community that exists in Impact HUB Bucharest and people have a strong feeling of belonging. The hosts and founders invest time and energy to create a strong community and connecting values and activities. There are also special events for the members, Community Evenings and Sexy Salads where people can relax, eat, connect and exchange ideas.
: The space is divided into different areas with the goal to facilitate the collaborative working and the creative learning process. There are many colourful tables where people can work together or just next to each other, there is a relaxing area, a meeting area, an open kitchen and so on. The space can easily be redesigned according to the event or to people’s needs. You can choose each time the spot that suits you and what you want to do. The colours, texture and ambiance are specially chosen to stimulate your creativity.
I really like it here because it’s a place where I feel at home, where anything is possible, where people are open and supportive and where you can feel the community.
