[Changing Careers, Education, Value Creation]
If you read previous editions of Digital52s, you’ll know now that coworking can take many shapes, and sizes, and serve a diverse range of communities. Spaces innovated with business models, with the physical space they possess as well as, for some, the online space they develop alongside it. Today’s story is a mix of everything we just described. While the inspiration comes from coworking, their founder describes it as a co-sewing space. And while her spaces are rather small, the community she gathers around them, in-person and online, is powerful and eager to raise awareness about the many hyper-talented fashion designers in Nigeria.
Let’s make our way to Lagos, to discover 360 Creative Hub.

Who’s behind the featured space?
Meet Blessing Achu.
Blessing started 360 Creative Hub after realizing how much the sharing economy as a concept was still untapped in Nigeria.
“I noticed that while we have many coworking spaces catered to the IT crowds, not many were centered around the Creative Industry. Which is a sort of problem because when you look at the index of innovation, creativity itself is a major factor.”
