The free coworking summit for the Mediterranean region

Late on Friday we had a chat with the folks putting together the Coworking Summit, and we’ve got to say that it sounds pretty awesome. The Summit is free to attend, and funds for travel/etc can be requested if your space qualifies. We recommend that all our partnered spaces and hubs check this out.

From October 8th to 11th, the Coworking Summit will bring dozens of coworking, maker, and artistic spaces together in Tunis, hosted in the new villa space of Tunisia’s first coworking space, Cogite.

The event, initiated by the Dutch program Mideast Creatives and hosted by the Tunisian agency Wasabi, will introduce founders and managers of these spaces to peers, experts, tools, and techniques to bring their spaces to the next level.

Spaces from Southern Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East have until Monday August 31st to apply!

The Program
Only selected spaces will be invited to participate in the free program in Tunis, which will be tailored to the precise needs of those selected to attend. In every application, we ask spaces to share the critical needs facing their space, regardless of whether they are an experienced space, or a new space trying to achieve sustainability. Once we determine the needs of the spaces, we will announce a dynamic program led by international experts on September 8th.

Mideast Creatives invites founders and managers of coworking spaces, hackerspaces, makerspaces, and art spaces of all kinds to apply before August 31st via The goal is to assemble spaces where creatives, artists, different kinds of entrepreneurs, organizations and freelancers come together and develop a community. Eligible countries include all those around the Mediterranean sea, from Spain and Morocco to Turkey, the Persian Gulf, and even Iran.

The Need
The creative sector thrives on collaboration and inspiration, and coworking spaces are the ideal driving force of the creative economy. There, the creative community can jointly launch projects, exchange ideas, and use technology that can support their growth individually and as a collective.

In recent years, these creative spaces have sprung up on all sides of the Mediterranean, particularly in North Africa and the Middle East. Despite their proximity and common challenges, these spaces lack a common network to bridge their communities, and share experiences and resources.

Our goal in bringing the managers and founders of these spaces together is to build a better future for the creative economies of this dynamic region.
