Living Labs supports creative projects, social venture and entrepreneurship driven by art and design. We build projects and partnership models that use art and design as a mechanism for innovation and community building, and connect with organizations to develop adaptive design labs that create an experimental “third space”.

Living Labs launched Shumka Centre for Creative Entrepreneurship in September 2018.
