Already one of the great fruits of the widespread discussion on free coworking is the acknowledgement that paid coworking has lost its bearings in many instances. Alex Hillman on his blog dangerouslyawesome puts it like this: „MANY paid coworking spaces aren’t differentiating themselves from business centers and aren’t keeping in line with the coworking core values. Social capital is often missing from the exchange between the provider and the member.“ I fully agree with Alex!!!

Coworking in Manchester – Manchester Digital Laboratory – a „Cultural Capital Space“

Veröffentlicht am 29. Februar 2012 von Felix Schürholz in Kategorie: CoWorking Kultur, CoWorking News International, Free Coworking Directory, Videos | Kommentieren »

Situated in the „Northern Quarter“ of Manchester (UK), MadLab offers a new kind of  „coworking“ experience. Aimed at both creatives and technologists, the facility provides a space and resources for collaboration, professional development and discovery. As the primary focus of the laboratory has never been „coworking only“, it possesses a foundation or business model that, as it proved in Manchester, is possibly more sustainable than a space that is offering „paid coworking“ only. Started in 2009 by Rachael Turner, Asa Calow, Hwa Young Jung and Dave Mee, MadLab has also been the host to the coworking cooperative „FlyThe.Coop„. The „paid coworking“ though had to terminate its operation after one year. Ben Gibbs, one of the founders of  „FlyThe.Coop“ had to change the concept and is since then organizing a casual coworking event called „Manchester Jelly“. The Event is free, like so many others at MadLab and is now being offered every Friday. Great!!!
