The Story Behind Mbare Innovation Hub

When we first learned about the idea for the Mbare Art Space, we knew we had to get involved. But transforming an old beer hall into a residency for Zimbabwe’s up and coming artists - what does that have to do with technology?

We are strong believers that magic happens at the intersection of art and tech. After all, artists, technologists, entrepreneurs - we’re all really just creatives, trying to bring to life our visions for the world. It turns out that the team at MAS shared this sentiment, and was eager to work together to see what would happen when artists and technologists collide.

Knowing how much potential this collaboration had, we needed to push the boundaries on architecture and design, and really try to do something special.

It’s safe to say, we’re all pretty pleased with out things came out! This was a complicated project but we are so excited to be up and running and for all of the impact we’ll be able to make in Mbare from this super creative and awe-inspiring space.

Like all of our spaces, the Uncommon Mbare Innovation Hub is open for visitors. If you’d like to visit and meet our students, please get in touch - we’d love to host you!
