City in the Making: A week in Rotterdam

Catherine Rogers. ADUK and Chair of The Generator has just spent a week in Rotterdam. Catherine writes:

“As a Director of The Generator Loughborough CIC, I recently travelled to Rotterdam to immerse myself for a week in the amazing project, City in the Making. I am a Director of an emerging space in the town centre of Loughborough for creative business and community arts and was hoping to learn from the directors of the Stad in de Maak about their journey so far in taking over 6 empty properties in Rotterdam and redeveloping them for the community of artists and makers who live there.

 This was part of a Peer to Peer exchange programme (P2P) and is an activity of the European Creative Hubs Network, which is co-funded by the European Commission, led by the British Council. It is set-up to help creative hubs staff (leaders, founders, managers, projects or platform leads, community managers, etc.) benefit from a work experience in a different creative hub, with the aim of sharing knowledge or setting up collaborative projects. By supporting the mobility of creative hub leaders to other hubs, it will enable learning and exchange of best practices, and foster international collaboration and co-creation. Here is the blog about my time there: https://www.a-n.co.uk/blogs/city-in-the-making.”
