What?

The Coworking Summit is an annual gathering for founders and managers of coworking, hacker, maker, and art spaces in the Mediterranean region. The Summit’s programming is designed specifically for the needs of spaces in this dynamic region. The 2016 Coworking Summit will take place from December 13-17 in Djerba, Tunisia. 

Who?

The Coworking Summit invites managers or founders of art spaces, coworking spaces, hacker and makerspaces from around the Mediterranean region. The Coworking Summit empowers these spaces by giving the founders and managers the opportunity to learn from and share experiences with each other.

 

Why?

More than just a place to work, coworking spaces serve as an anchor for communities of young, motivated individuals. These spaces are transforming the ways in which people work, creating new types of jobs, and reinvigorating the cultural life of their cities.
