Artsy, raw, chill, ghetto are what we at JUICE would use to describe this new place in town, Urban Village. Located in Bangsar, this place was set up to help creative entrepreneurs and professional freelancers operate their business. Equipped with spaces for flea markets, private functions, a cafe, co-working spaces (it’s about time we have places like these in KL), you know this is a good place to be in if you need that artistic drive.
This creative hub was set up by Pop Collective. Other than being involved in Urban Village, Pop Collective are also handling Talent Jive. They (Talent Jive) focus on providing exposure to independent and unknown musicians.
Urban Village Enterprenur Hub officially launches on 9 Feb 2012. Apart from that, they will also be introducing their new campaign, indiepreneurs’ (independent entrepreneurs): Let’s Start A Revolution during the launch. This campaign highlights the stories of the four current tenants of Urban Village; Founders of Laguna Music, Tarik Jeans, Karipop KL, SeLUT Press, A Drug-Free Youth Association. Here’s a teaser of their campaign!
