All interested creative hub leaders, managers or representatives from across Europe are invited to apply via  the online form. The deadline to apply is 26 February 2017. The ECHN team will run a selection process of participants, based on the responses in the application form. The results of the selection will be announced by 3 March at the latest.

Within this first workshop, Factoría Cultural and the ECHN partners, have set-out to help creative hub leaders who are at the beginning of their professional road, to identify key elements for the day-to-day running of their creative hubs, from financial sustainability, to building a community or setting up an education platform. The workshop intends to offer multiple examples and practical tools and tips to help identify the values of a creative hub and build on them towards a strong community, sustainability and social/economic impact.

In contrast with the series of large-scale Fora organised by ECHN in Belgrade or Athens, these workshops are small-scale practical meetings (maximum 25 participants) with the objective of efficiently developing and improving the skills of a small groups of creative hub leaders. The workshops should be able to lead to concrete and meaningful learning outcomes, which the participants will be able to cascade, disseminate and put into practice after the workshop, at their local level.

Draft programme:

  • Wednesday March 22 – afternoon sessions starting with 13.30 local time
  • Thursday March 23 – morning sessions until 14.00 local time
