Since the global rise of creative working spaces, from smaller office-hub spaces like Second Home to large-scale media companies like Google and Facebook, the words Collaboration, Sharing and Community regularly appear in branding and mission statements of such organisations. They reflect a certain ethos of supporting individuals to work more efficiently, create more professional content, and to ultimately increase access to lucrative opportunities and financial capital.
Collaboration, Sharing and Community are the working values that are reconsidered as part of the SPCA. By staging the spatial and organisational features normally found in creative working environments, the SPCA examines how these terms are used by organisations to incubate creativity and suggests possible ways that they can be refocused and repurposed in order to create alternative forms of capital.
