Open Call for Participation in Urban Explorations

Open Call for Participation in Urban Explorations

The following opportunity is part of Cultural and Creative Spaces and Cities project, where ECHN is an associate partner. Therefore, ECHN members are especially encouraged to apply for participation, as we have secured some entries for the members. 

The Cultural and Creative Spaces and Cities (CCSC) project offers travel support for 25 cultural leaders to participate in five Urban Explorations. The events are taking place in Kosice (Slovakia), Madrid (Spain), Lund (Sweden), Helsinki (Finland) and Timisoara (Romania). Join this EU funded project and the debate about participatory governance and urban commons.

This is a great opportunity to learn from international cultural professionals, share your ideas with other like-minded people and significantly expand your professional network.

What are Urban Explorations?

The Urban Explorations are study visits hosted by the CCSC Urban Labs in five different European cities: Kosice, Madrid, Lund, Helsinki and Timisoara. The Urban Explorations are open for an international audience and each one of them will host at least 50 participants, including representatives of cultural and creative spaces, policymakers and leaders of other grass-roots and public cultural organisations.

During these events, the participants will learn about the work of the CCSC Urban Labs, will be introduced to some of the most prestigious cultural organisations in each city by the hand of their managers, and network with other international and local culture professionals.

 Trans Europe Halles and ECHN will make the selection of participants.
