HOC | Hub de Oficinas Comunitárias, or Community Workshops Hub in English, is a portuguese based initiative that completed it’s idealization during LISBON HACK NODE and we’re really thrilled with the sea of possibilities that this young Open Web collaborative environment can create.
HOC’s objective is to be an aggregator and disseminator of knowledge and good practices; a bridge of dialogue and community building; a vehicle for the empowering force of Open Web to reach organizations, collectives, community leaders, creatives and enthusiasts in general; and of leveraging resilience of local NGOs, whose focus is on the most vulnerable groups in our society.
