As every freelancer knows, you’re only as good as your network and community. So why shouldn’t freelancers have their own community hub within every city? Well, Freelancers Union is hoping to build just that.
Today we are celebrating the upcoming launch of Freelancers Hub, a dedicated space for freelancers in DUMBO, Brooklyn!
Freelancers Hub features:
- Free coworking
- Events and educational programming for freelancers
- Freelance business workshops
- Access to legal and financial resources
Also, we want to hear your ideas for building a center that helps freelancers thrive. Are you an expert who would be interested in hosting a workshop or do you have a great idea for an event? Please let us know.
This is a historic and first-of-its-kind partnership between Freelancers Union, the New York City Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment, and the Independent Filmmaker Project, and marks the first concerted effort by a city to invest in providing direct training and freelancers. We hope it will serve as a model to replicate across the country.
