The Shumka Centre for Creative Entrepreneurship fosters the movement of creative people into systems and situations where their work and ideas can have the most impact. An initiative of Living Labs, the Centre will be developed throughout 2018 - 2021 with a grant from the Vancouver Foundation and will ultimately act as a hub for activities relating to entrepreneurship and enterprise at Emily Carr. The aim of the Shumka Centre is to establish a place where creatives can find community and knowledge as well as connection to the resources they need to launch their projects in the world – whether those are products, companies, events, curatorial initiatives, non-profit organizations, or other initiatives.
Launched in 2018, the Shumka Centre is an ongoing project of Living Labs.
