P2P Learning Program

A custom-made mobility program for creative hub managers who want to set off new innovative collaborations.


Peer learning is a collaborative way of learning from each other and developing new concepts and ideas with professionals engaged in a relevant field of work.
Hub managers will be selected every year to be part of a 5-days long peer-to-peer exchange 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
  • initiate projects of co-creation or collaborative plans
  • share knowledge and expertise across Europe.

13 Visiting Hubs will be supported with travel and accommodation expenses. 13 Hosting Hubs will be supported in the implementation of a final event to showcase the exchange’s main outcomes with the local community.

The end of the exchange will produce a collection of the participants’ stories, a publication that will be used for advocacy and to promote peer-to-peer exchanges in the European cultural and creative sector.
