HUBBUB is a celebratory showcase during which students, City staff, elected officials and university faculty members connect and learn about each-other’s work. At the end of each term, the most creative and exciting projects from CityStudio collaborations are displayed, and visitors can vote for their favourite ideas.
A judging panel selects the most impactful, relevant and promising projects, with prizes to celebrate the students’ hard work. Stay tuned for our next HUBBUB in December 2020!
