The following criteria define the core structure of the network.
#1: A hub’s focus must be to support the Creative and Cultural Industries (CCIs).
#2: A hub must be a base for multiple businesses and/or individuals from the Cultural and Creative Industries.
#3: A hub must have a physical community activation.
#4: A hub must be focused on the professional and social development of its community.
There are two ways to join the network.
1. As a regular member
2. As an associate member
Regular Membership: If you meet all the four criteria listed, you qualify to join the network as a regular member. By paying the annual membership fee, regular members benefit from all of the network activities/resources, and have a right to vote, nominate etc.
Associate Membership: We welcome hubs, organizations, institutions, networks and individuals that do not meet the regular membership’s criteria to join the Network as Associate Members provided they have professional activity and interest relevant to the CCS. Associate members have the right to benefit from all the activities and resources by paying an annual fee. Associate members are not eligible to vote or be nominated in the general assembly.
The European Creative Hubs Network is a peer-led network with a mission to enhance the creative, economic and social impact of the creative hubs.
This is the only network in Europe specifically tailored to support hubs that host and connect multiple creative businesses. As focal points for cultural and creative professionals, creative hubs play a key role at the intersection of culture, economy, society, education and technology, and they offer the most effective way to support the growth and impact of the CCS. To achieve this, hubs themselves need to network, to pool resources, share best practices, and build on advocacy, policy and opportunities – and this is what ECHN offers to its members.
