FREE coworking on Friday 12 August 2016 in Darebin

Three Darebin work hubs are offering free coworking on Friday 12 August to celebrate International Coworking Day. CoBrew, Nest Coworking and Happy Hubbub – each space with its own distinct personality – are throwing open their doors and encouraging Darebiners to ‘find their tribe’.

CoBrew, a cavernous space in the industrial heart of Thornbury, sits above 3 Ravens craft brewery. Member perks include free fresh locally roasted coffee and, of course, a fridge full of the craft beer that’s brewed downstairs. Regular member gatherings include drinks at the downstairs brewery bar, pop-up markets, classes and other events.

‘The concept for CoBrew encompasses 3 Ravens brewing philosophy,’ says Nathan Liascos, CoBrew General Manager. ‘“Brew” is a metaphor for “creation”, not just the process of making beer. Our coworking community is for anyone that feels the future is about sharing, collaborating and creating.’

‘Our large coworking space and location allows for flexibility in coworking spaces including executive offices, private studios, large permanent desks and hot desks.’

Nest Coworking

Nest Coworking, on High St in Thornbury, is an acoustically designed space with elegant architecture, bespoke furniture and custom fittings. Nest includes a boardroom, open fire and amphitheatre, and is open 24/7 to members.

‘Nest is about concentration and collaboration, about coworking as a quality experience in a designed environment’ says Jay Chubb, Nest’s founder. ‘We’re also about diversity—our 60 odd members include 6 social enterprises, as well as freelancers, professionals, startup founders and creatives.’

Nest sees hotdesking as the future of work. ‘There are no permanent desks, no unconscious territoriality, no buildup of mess. It’s reflected in our motto of Change Every Day’, says Jay Chubb.

Happy Hubbub

Happy Hubbub, in central Preston, is Australia’s first coworking space with on-site, licensed childcare. It caters primarily to freelancers and small business operators with young children, as well as employees returning to work from parental leave.

‘The need for child-friendly coworking spaces is growing,’ says co-founder Erin Richards. ‘Women are starting small businesses at a higher rate than men, and 25% of female business operators cite pregnancy/childcare reasons when asked why they left their last job.’

Happy Hubbub bucks the trend of most coworking spaces in terms of gender ratio. ‘It is about 9 to 1 female to male at present, but we’re not a women-only space; in fact, we’re not even a parent-only space. Everyone is welcome!’

All three spaces are offering free coworking on Friday 12 August.
