Over a period of three years, the Hubs For Good programme provided creative hubs in Malaysia the opportunity to actively participate in three capacity building workshops and two UK-exchange programmes; receive five seed grants; attend a regional forum in Kuala Lumpur and three international online forums; and access the Creative Hubs Malaysia digital platform and various other resources.
An evaluation of the Hubs For Good programme in Malaysia was conducted between November 2020 and February 2021 with the primary aim of identifying the programme’s outcomes, strengths and weaknesses by assessing:
  1. Intrinsic, social and organisational values to which the programme contributed
  2. Impact which the programme has achieved, or has potential to create, particularly in content development, scaling up and institutional change
