Moto Republik is the first creative hub in Zimbabwe. Moto was created to respond to the need for space where young people could meet, collaborate and come up with big ideas to transform Zimbabwe.The hub has become a hive of activity and a safe space for many vulnerable groups, including the LGBTQ+ community. The hub has become the training ground for many innovative young startups and provides a co-working space that is home to over 50 bloggers, artists, designers, creative entrepreneurs and activists.Hundreds of young people pass through Moto Republik’s doors every month as part of the Hustlers Market monthly event, a platform for new artists, artisans, and craft makers to reach new markets. Moto Republik is also a member of the Creative South creative hub network.
Creative South is a network between creative spaces, collectives and artists. It focuses on creating exchanges between young creatives in the south-central region of the continent while developing platforms that encourage free expressions that challenge dominant societal norms and narratives.
