P2P Learning Program

ECHN launches the first peer-to-peer learning program, aiming at connecting emerging and well-established hub managers or cultural and creative professionals to co-create and share their expertise.

Program

Peer learning is a collaborative way of learning from each other and developing new concepts and ideas with people engaged in the same or relevant field of work. 10 Hub managers or cultural or creative professionals will be selected every year to be part of a peer-to-peer learning program that aims to engage leading, established, and innovative creative hubs with peers from emerging creative hubs across Europe. The idea of the exchanges is to seek new formats of cross-sectoral cooperation, to initiate projects of co-creation or collaborative plans, as well as to share knowledge and expertise across Europe. Participants will also receive a budget to create an event at the hosting hub venue.

The end of the exchange will produce a collection of the participants’ stories: “Been there, learned that”. The publication will include interviews and visual material from each individual peer-to-peer session, as well as the main learnings and findings from each individual exchange. This collection of good practices will be used as a long-term reference for members and nonmembers in the relevant topics.
