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.
