Hub Vilnius – the first coworking center in Lithuania, is expanding and adds the second location here in Vilnius. New chapter opens up on June 1, 2011 an is located in the shooping mall Gedimino 9, right in the ciry center on it’s busiest street.
The space (107 sq.m.) is inside a larger NGO operated space of 530 sq.m. Our coworkers will be able to enjoy 30 work stations, 3 meeting rooms, lounge area and a kitchen. New members welcome. More photos coming soon:)
This week the first coworking center has been opened in Kaunas and it’s the second one in Lithuania already with Hub Vilnius working since the ed of October 2010. Greetings for the local team of coworkers and to Tomas Kažemėkas, who managed to mobilize them. Hub Kaunas landed in the building that is known as the Architects’ house which is located in the heart of the old city (address: 22, Vilnius street, Kaunas).
There is a common area of about 100 sq. m, with 25 desks, coffee bar, library and lounge area. In addition they have 55 sq. m meeting room that can host up to 50 people and movie making room of 26 sq. m. Coworkers from both hubs can use them depending upon need.
I wanted to share with you observations by David Barrie.He reviews examples of social innovation that changes the face of the city. There are similar things in Lithuania worth mentioning as well.
For example arts and culture ( Street Music Day ) come out into the public, the street becomes part of life. Social relations are changing: strangers meet to share emotions and activities together (bubbler ), some second hand stuff ( fleamarket at teachers’ house), their skills and experience ( Eco Wave at Gedimino 9), ideas ( Pecha Kucha ) or just simply talk to each other.Artists and other active people are changing their communities inside Vilnius as well: starting in Uzupis adn ending with Newtown .Coworking in our Hub is part of this movement as well.And that’s just the beginning:).
Welcome to the first coworking center in Lithuania – Hub Vilnius. We have been open since October 29, 2010.
You can join our Facebook group, become our member or take part in our events and activities. Don’t hesitate to come and visit us!
The Hub is only a vehicle for being a more effective worker and a more active contributor to our city. Space is a tool to create conditions for cooperation and partnership among our members.
Coworking at the Hub isn’t just for technology people. Our community is comprised of designers, developers, writers, artists, entrepreneurs, scientists, educators, startups, NGOs, marketers, social activists, game developers, and more. The common thread is this: we want to lead social innovation and we’re happier and more productive together than alone.
