Creative Lenses Case Study: AMBASADA
The following Creative Lenses report brings to light the story of AMBASADA, a cultural and resource centre from Romania. AMBASADA serves as a meeting point for NGOs, freelancers, artists, musicians, social and creative entrepreneurs. It originated from a dedicated group of volunteers who were eager to bring positive civic action and social change to the local community. In order to achieve their goals, the centre went on a mission to find a permanent space and gain recognition and support from the community and the city. Today they have managed to become a point of reference on the local and national level, purchase a space in the old hat factory and develop a social enterprise model that secures their financial sustainability.
