I propose that “we” make available our internal hotdesk spaces for others within the sector. We advertise where/when/how and make every effort to reduce the friction to make mi casa es su casa. The results could be to foster new connections, reduce isolation, help each other out and start to make the future of work a reality.
I want to… book a temporary space to work at for a few hours or a whole day at a time at a relateable organisation such as a museum.
So that… I don’t have to work alone at home all the time or because I happen to be out of town.
As a… regular traveler across the UK
When… i happen to be in another town or city with the need to work
Because… I can’t afford to hire a private co-working space or hover in a noisy high street cafe (at least not most of the time).
A boiler plate set of terms and conditions to cover fire evac, desktop workstation assessment and shared values to abide by would keep everyone happy. Oh and let’s have an agreed wifi host name and password.
The “we” above can be any organsiation so that we scale up a network that could be anywhere in the world.
I am part of an action research project with Culture24 looking to how we use the opportunities of hybrid for good purposes. Birmingham will be the first flag of hopefully many.
See you in Birmingham?
