Creative Enterprise Russia: Driving the economy through creative hubs
British Council together with innovation foundation Nesta and Chekhov APi creative residence are excited to announce an open call for the autumn school «Creative Enterprise Russia: Driving the economy through creative hubs» which will take part on 3-8 September 2017.

Taking place in the creative atmosphere of a countryside residence outside Moscow, The Creative Enterprise Russia: Hubs is a four-day practical workshop that equips creative entrepreneurs with the tools and knowledge they need to succeed.

Expert facilitator from the UK, as well as a Russian curator, provide face-to-face support to help participants explore business concepts, further develop their business proposition, and refine their business model that suits their hopes and ambitions, all in a peer-led environment as part of a global network of Russian and European creative hubs.

The workshop is based on two methodologies: the Creative Enterprise Programme – a three-day programme developed by Nesta and the British Council which covers all the stages of setting up your own creative enterprise, and Creative HubKit – a manual written in collaboration with Creative Edinburgh and Creative Dundee, analysing the phenomena of creative hubs in Great Britain.

If you are a founder or manager of a growing or established creative hub with its own audience, venue and online presence (website and/or page in social networks), then this program is for you! If you want to participate, please fill the registration form no later than 16 July 2017 23.59 GMT.

Participation fee: 16 000 roubles

Successful candidates from the UK, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Turkey, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, and Serbia will have their travel expenses and participation fee fully covered. For details:

The successful participant will be provided with:

• 4-day workshop
