Free work space for Asian Games reporters
The Jakarta Post
A Jakarta-based coworking space is offering free use for journalists covering the 2018 Asian Games, in support of the Games’ coverage.
Journalists may use any of COCOWORK’s, formerly known as EV Hive, work spaces in seven locations around the city, pro bono, from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays from Aug. 20 to Sept. 2, the duration of the Asian Games.
Reporters only need to flash their press cards to the staff to gain access to facilities including coworking desks, free flow coffee and tea, recreational entertainment and even sleeping pods in certain locations.
“We want to support them [journalists] in every possible way,” said CEO and founder Carlson Lau.
Three of the coworking spaces are located on Jl. Sudirman in South Jakarta: IFC Tower 1, 11th floor and 15th floor; Menara Mandiri Tower 2, 12th floor; and Equity Tower, eighth floor. Others in South Jakarta are JSC Hive on Jl. Dr. Satrio and Plaza Kuningan Menara Selatan, 10th floor.
Two others are in Central Jakarta: UOB building, 32nd floor on Jl. MH Thamrin and Kantor Pos Logistik building on Jl. Gedung Kesenian No. 3.
