IMF Cebu MetroHackathon 2.0

Through an extensive discussion from various stakeholders, experts, professionals, students, the outcome of the Cebu MetroHackathon 1.0 was a global metro vision for Metro Cebu – TO BE A CREATIVE HUB BY 2050. What is a Creative Hub? “Creative hubs are made up of many shapes and sizes, from buildings that house creative practitioners and businesses to temporary labs and incubation spaces which ignite innovations, as well as online networks that bring people together through an annual programme of events. While some spaces specialise in a specific sector (e.g. design hub), others welcome a wide range of disciplines together; and can be as small as a handful of people or as large as a 3,000 strong tribe. Every creative hub is as unique as a fingerprint, as its model is determined by its geographic placement, cultural context, community requirements and unique funding model. Creative hubs have ultimately become 'nests for freelancers and micro SMEs to gather' (Prof. Andy Pratt: City, University of London).” Hubs are people focused and are facilitated by trusted individuals who are well connected in the sector(s) - referred to as 'hub managers' or 'hub leaders' - that broker, maintain and curate relationships among their community.
