We are delighted to share that we partnered with Nazarbayev University, Kazakhstan’s DC Lab, A Digital Creativity Lab – which is the first coworking space in Astana for designers, digital artists, video-makers and photographers!
We partnered with Nazarbayev Universities DC Lab with the support from the British Council: Creative Spark programme to:
- Provide opportunities for skills development for students and young creative entrepreneurs
