Sheffield’s Gist Lab and the Art of Collaboration

It seems the idea of establishing semi-open spaces where people can come together and collaborate in interesting ideas is spreading. A few weeks ago, I dropped in on the Centre for Creative Collaboration in London (#thatlondon) and heard Brain Condon and Lloyd Davies talk about the exciting plans they have for that Centre, and some of the interesting collaborations which have already begun there.

And, this week, I called in at the brand new Gist Lab, a centre starting from scratch in Sheffield which is taking a similar approach to fostering collaboration between the city’s tech community, and others who want to join in.

Here, I talked to Jag Gill, one of the founders about his hopes for the centre and the kinds of collaboration it is seeking to foster.

I think this is a really interesting approach and I look forward to seeing what comes out of it. I’d also love to hear about other centres doing similar things.
