British Council

Early in 2017, the British Council commissioned a research report to map creative hubs in Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand and Indonesia as part of its creative economy work in the Southeast Asia region. In Malaysia, the research casts a bird’s eye view on existing creative hubs across the country — studying the contextual definition of hubs, their histories, business models, organisational structures and more. This resulted in a beautifully designed 54-pages long mapping report, featuring responses from established and start-up hubs grouped into four main categories, namely: ‘Funding’, ‘Network’, ‘Training’ and ‘Space’. The report also features a growing directory of creative hubs and spaces in Malaysia.
