We are glad to announce the 10 selected exchanges teams for Hyper Global / Hyper Local!
We are very excited to announce the kickstart of CORAL-ITN, a new research and innovation programme that ECHN is a proud partner of, a project aimed to explore the emergence of collaborative workspaces in rural and peripheral areas, understand their impact in local and regional economies, and integrate them as development tools in policy agendas.
MakersXchange’s open call Hyper Global / Hyper continues until 12th January!
The call addresses makers in the broadest sense of this term, including creative professionals who produce work and projects using technology and/or traditional tools and methods, artists, craftspeople, sculptors and textile designers.
We are looking forward to catching up on our next family brunch this week! In this month’s brunch the next Hub Spotlight is Buinho!
Makers’ eXchange (MAX) conducted a series of in-depth interviews with makers across Europe! In these interviews, each one of the makers had the chance to introduce themselves and present their initiatives, discuss about the things that defined them, their success stories, as well as the challenges that they are facing.
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
