Hi from Share Hub!
Here is what happened in the Share Hub Seminar “Shine Like Sharing Spaces” last Monday. It took a while to gather the presentations and videos for a more live article!
So, let’s begin.
There was a seminar talking about sharing spaces in Korea with N Space at the Circle Foundation on July 21st. It was a weekday but the crowd filled the hall! It was also very impressive that most of the audience stayed after the seminar and sticked around to talk to each other.

Open Contents Lab, 00Space, Blank spoke in the first session, and Seoul Social Standard, Co-Kkiri, and Dream Maru spoke in the second session.
Open Contents Lab is based at the co-working space of the Circle Foundation. They not only pursue sharing of the space but also sharing of contents. Open Contents Lab is always opened, but the users have to share their conversation made at the space for next people. They may become a source of someone else’s idea.
The 0’s in the name of 00Space represent the emptyness or gap between things. They experiment on various public activities within local places of Changshindong.
By hearing their name, Blank might make you think of color white or blank margin. Their vision is to reach out to the margins of our society on community activities.
Seoul Social Standard runs a sharehouse located in Tongeuidong. They designed the place, and now they’re operating it. This sharehouse is unique compared to other ones in a way that it has a co-working space inside. We could hear abour an architect’s perspective about this somewhat private but public place.
Co-Kkiri team came all the way from Gwangju just to attend this seminar! They are running a co-working space, and manage various experimental programs to connect the local community and local youth.
Dream Maru is a co-working space owned by Dream Wagon (Former Gyounggido Center for Women’s Professional Development). This space female-only, and provides supports for opening and administrating new businesses.
