Session proposal: Social innovation Centre for community groups

Net Tuesday organizer Elijah van der Giessen will be pitching a discussion that discusses next steps with the potential closure of W2 Woodwards.

The recent difficulties experienced by W2 Woodwards highlights Vancouver’s need for a community event and work space that will serve as a cross-sectoral incubator for digitally-delivered social and economic innovation.

This community space will bring together artists, hackers, nonprofits and other creators so that they can support each other’s work and co-create the next big ideas.

What’s your idea for a shared amenity space?

It could be modeled on Toronto’s Centre for Social Innovation. http://socialinnovation.ca/

  1. Learn about W2’s exciting plans for restructuring and relaunching as an inner-city innovation space, without being dragged down by our money-losing social enterprise cafe. Lots of creative groups aligning to launch the new W2!
