The programme was led by a UK hubs steering group and the British Council is now leading on a two year EU-funded project which aims to boost significantly the ecosystem that currently supports creative and culture sectors across Europe. The association wants to use an international network and global reach to help creative hubs managers make their spaces more resilient and sustainable.
The project is partnered by an affiliation of six European creative hubs - Bios (Greece), Addict (Portugal), Betahaus (Germany), Kulturni Kod (Serbia), Creative Edinburgh (UK) and Factoria Cultural (Spain) - and the European Business Network, with a focus on creating a cohesive community of experienced creative hub leaders across the continent. Coming from a variety of sectors, business models and process stages, the network will promote hubs as innovative models to support Europe’s creative economy. Outputs will include forums, workshops, exchanges and a leadership group.
