ECHN Workshops

Does your Creative Hub have some valuable knowledge to share among the ECHN community?
Submit your proposal and ECHN will support you produce your very own workshop for hub managers and creative and cultural professionals!


Creative hubs are storehouses of expertise and 21st century skills for the cultural and creative industries. The ECHN Workshops program supports emerging creative hubs set up impactful workshops that target other hub managers and stakeholders, to spread and share specific know-how and expertise that would otherwise remain uncollected.

Every year, one creative hub from the ECHN network will be elected by the ECHN community to produce a learning experience powered by ECHN. Small and emerging creative hubs will be prioritised to allow them to amplify their resonance in the international map.

The creative hubs granted by the program will be ECHN ambassadors and will have the opportunity to let ECHN members interface with local and international experts in the CCIs.  Every ECHN Workshop will eventually produce a final output to share with the rest of the ECHN community.

Produce your own shareable toolkit



This call is open to creative hubs with a regular or associate membership with ECHN.

Creative hubs can submit their proposals by 31 May 2023. ECHN will make a preliminary selection of proposals that keeps into consideration the proposal’s themes and geographical diversity and it will prioritise emerging hubs.

The evaluation of the selected proposals will be open to the creative hubs of the network, who will be able to vote on the proposal of their preference. The ECHN management team will vote too.

The applicant hubs will have the chance to pitch their workshop proposals during this year’s Hubs Meetup (5-6 June in Timișoara, Romania). The votes will be collected during the event and the workshop proposal with the most votes will have access to the program’s grant.

The selected hub will be granted financial support, but the organisation and implementation of the workshop will be the responsibility of the beneficiary.
