Hub Managers Apply Now: EU Hub Exchanges

The Peer-to-Peer (P2P) scheme is a mobility programme, set up to enable creative hubs from across Europe to connect, collaborate, share and learn from each other.

We are pleased to announce the second round of the P2P scheme is now open for applications, funding approximately 35 hubs from across Europe, to travel to and stay with, a hub of their choice for a minimum of fivedays between May and September 2017.

This scheme is part of the wider European Creative Hubs Network , a two year project co-funded by the European Union through the Creative Europe programme, which aims to connect, support and elevate creative hubs across Europe.

We launched the first round of our P2P scheme in September 2016 with 14 creative hubs buddying up and learning from their peers between September and January 2017. 

Tânia from CRU Cowork in Portugal, went to Berlin from November 27th to December 4th 2016, to meet betahaus and its team, through our Peer to Peer Scheme (P2P). Here is Tânia's blog post about her experience and you can watch her video below.

Other participants of our P2P scheme include:

Oana from Citizenit in Romania, went to Belgrade at the end of November 2016, to meet Mikser House and its team.  Read more about Oana's experience here.

Atılım from ATÖLYE in Istanbul, went to Barcelona in January 2017, to meet Makers of Barcelona (MOB) and its team. Read more about Atilim's exchange here.

Daniela from Coffice in Skopje, went to Stockholm in December 2016, to meet Impact Hub and its team. Read more about Daniela's exchange here.  More stories of hub exchanges can be read here.

If you are a creative hub and would like to take a short time out to visit and learn from another like-minded creative hub, this programme is for you.  We know that creative hubs are busy fire fighting and multi tasking, so we hope we've done the hard work in laying the foundations of how new connections, collaborations and learnings can take place across Europe.
