This month’s Online Brunch took us to a converted train station in Lille, France!


As usual, on the first Friday of March we had another round of our dear ‘Online Family Brunch’ – our monthly event exclusive to ECHN members!

This time we welcome a few new faces from our most recent members so they were welcomed in the family with their peers, we caught up on the upcoming programs and, as usual, we took a tour inside the walls of one of them!


In this month’s #hubspotlight we discovered a creative third place in the heart of Lille! 

One of our youngest members, the Bazaar St So is a former train station that has become a 5,000 m² third place dedicated to the creative economy. Located in the city center of Lille, it receives daily 126 structures for more than 270 permanent residents divided between workshops, shared offices and a coworking space! 

This is a hybrid place dedicated to creative activities and carriers of social values. Under one roof, a diversity of practices, skills and professions allows the development and mutual enrichment of its residents by promoting the emergence of innovative projects.

Thank you to Benoit and Quentin to the wonderful tour to this (biiig) space!
