European Creative Hubs Network
Creative hubs are platforms or workplaces for artists, musicians, designers, filmmakers, app developers or start-up entrepreneurs. They are uniquely diverse in structure, sector and services, and range from collective and co-operative, to labs and incubators; and can be static, mobile or online. More importantly, they are drivers in a field with the potential to revive the economy.
European Creative Hubs Network is a 2-year project. British Council is leading the work, in partnership with six European creative hubs – Bios in Greece, Addict in Portugal, betahaus in Germany, Kulturni Kod/Nova Iskra in Serbia, Creative Edinburgh in UK and Factoria Cultural in Spain – and the European Business and Innovation Network.
The project is co-funded by the European Commission, through the Cross-sectoral strand of the Creative Europe programme, and is part of the European Commission strategy on Culture in External Relation.
In this spirit, our aim is to help creative hubs connect and collaborate across Europe. We are building a network community of creative hubs by hosting a series of people to people encounters, and we are preparing a bespoke training programme for the needs and free use of creative hubs. We want to champion the sector, to share stories about creative hubs, about what they are and how they operate. It is our ambition to demonstrate that creative hubs contribute to the growth and the resilience of the creative sector, and to the economy as a whole.
