ECHN Workshops

Do you think that your hub has the potential to share some valuable knowledge among the ECHN community?
Then submit your proposal and ECHN will support you produce your very own workshop series for hub managers and creative and cultural professionals!


Creative hubs are storehouses of expertise and 21st century skills for the CCIs. For this reason, ECHN is launching a new pilot learning program where different hubs will have the opportunity to hold their own workshops addressed to other hub managers and culture and creative professionals.

Every year, one creative hub from the ECHN network will be selected and supported for the organisation of a learning workshop open to the public. Smaller hub members will be prioritised to be selected to take on this task.

Applicants will share their workshop proposal and the members of the network will have the chance to vote on the proposal they prefer. This voting will determine the selected hub.

The workshops can be based on a blended model of learning. Participants will start their first meetings with the mentors digitally, followed by a 4-day physical meeting in the organising hub location.
