ECHN #standswithukraine

It is with a heavy heart that we have been following the latest brutal acts happening in Ukraine, which we severely condemn, as well as any form of violence.

We stand for freedom, democracy, and as Europeans and humans we stand with Ukraine and its people, in particular our ECHN members, friends and partners.

We have been in contact with our members directly affected by this and we have been expressing our solidarity to this situation by promoting ‘Open Doors’ within our hubs to welcome creative professionals, by organising Training Sessions for Hub Managers and other Cultural Organizations’ professionals on dealing with migrant crisis and by collecting at the Creatives Unite platform all the initiatives happening in the creative sector to support the people most affected by this situation. 

We are committed to pursuing a vision of Europe that stands for peace and wellbeing for all its people.

We stand together:
 Our unity is our strength.

ECHN Membership Campaign for 2022 is on!!

The time to renew the vows is now: as the new year is around the corner, so is our membership renewal!

Uniting hubs and hub people.
Training hubs in order to conceive new functional forms that are used,
not only for internal practical purposes
but also for cities where space for creatives, is limited.

In a precarious climate, it is a way to create a safe environment,
which reflects a healthy society and retains creativity at all times
or orientate them so that they absorb maximum attention and help.
These two strategies allow the extension of the capacity,
so that new ideas have enough time to mature,
while the horizontal branch expansion can increase creativity and new ideas production
