The Innovative Coworking Spaces of 15th-Century Italy

Much has been made of these shared workspaces as a brand-new idea, one that barely existed 10 years ago. But the way they function reminds me of a very old idea: the Renaissance “bottega” (workshop) of 15th-century Florence, in which master artists were committed to teaching new artists, talents were nurtured, new techniques were at work, and new artistic forms came to light with artists competing among themselves but also working together. The Renaissance put knowledge at the heart of value creation, which took place in the workshops of these artisans, craftsmen, and artists. HOME - Makers Mentors. Ontario Culinary Tourism Alliance.

Where to go on a dogsledding adventure

Six creative ways artists can improve communities. From income inequality and unemployment to poverty, education and healthcare, communities around the world are facing critical challenges that require creative ideas and solutions. Any of these challenges could use an artist’s mind, a creative question or a critical thinker to help us find our way to a more healthy and just future.
