EVENTS HIGHLIGHTING THE CO-OPERATIVE AND MUTUAL SECTOR AND ITS MANY BENEFITS

Thinkers in Residence Masterclass

Co-operatives and the Creative Industries with Thinker in Residence, Dr Guy Turnbull (UK)

How can the co-operatives model benefit the creative industries?

Find out how and add your voice to the discussion with Thinker in Residence, co-operatives expert and social entrepreneur, Dr Guy Turnbull, platform co-operatives expert, platform co-ops expert and Director of Co-operative Bonds, Rohan Clarke, and leaders from the creative industries.

The Masterclass on Co-operatives and the Creative Industries will explore the challenges and opportunities across various sectors of the creative industries in SA and discuss in detail the opportunities that co-operatives can offer the creative industries. The class will provide detailed information on different co-operative models, illustrated by case studies of platform co-ops, freelance artist co-ops, consumer and employee owned co-ops and block-chain co-ops and explore possibilities for new tech co-ops in film, TV and music industries among others. The session will also explore how these different co-op models intersect with co-working spaces through enhancing community, and how they intersect with the services provided by industry bodies and guilds.

Hear about why there is a resurgence in co-ops in the creative industries and explore ideas for your sector with the advice and feedback from experts; and don’t miss this exciting opportunity to influence discussions with industry leaders around new co-operative approaches to organising the creative industries of the future.
