The creative lab community is an online movement created and nurtured by twofour54 ibtikar. It brings together many diverse and brilliant creative minds of the Middle East, supporting and inspiring them as they turn their dreams into reality. creative lab gives you the inspiration and guidance you need to turn your ideas into actual results. Through connections, articles, videos, content, seminars and the like, you're given all the ammunition you need to bring your thoughts to fruition. Submit your creative ideas to us when you're ready, and once reviewed by our team, we will let you know how we can support you and potentially fund your ideas as we help you bring them to life.
creative lab gives your ideas, dreams and ambitions a space where they're heard, reviewed, respected, kick-started and fostered. Coming up with a good idea and then getting the professional support, guidance, and funding you need to make it happen is often challenging. creative lab has the resources and know-how to support your ideas from conceptualisation to production, and beyond.
You can submit pretty much any idea you want. Examples include: short films, TV shows, documentaries, radio programs, songs, websites, games, mobile applications, books, comics and magazines.
To send your idea to creative lab, click here and fill out the online application form. Please make sure your contact information is accurate so we can reach you if your idea is chosen to become our latest project.
We receive hundreds of submissions each month and review every single one of them. The number of projects we can work on each month is limited but we do respond to all applications within 2 weeks of receiving them. Don't give up on us! If you don't hear back from creative lab after 2 weeks, please contact us on Twitter @CreativeLabME or on Facebook. In the meantime, feel free to submit other ideas.
As many as you like - the only limit is your own imagination!
If we like your idea, we'll call you in to meet the creative lab team. There'll be a meeting to discuss your idea in detail, and if it's something we can help you with, we'll work on a production timeline for getting your project up and running.
You will always get credit for your ideas. We will never take this away from you. Also, if we invest in your creative project, our standard approach is that after we recoup this investment, all other income the creative project generates is yours.
