European Creative Hubs Network (ECHN) is a 2-year project. British Council is leading the work, in partnership with six European creative hubs – Bios  in Greece, Roco  in the UK, betahaus in Germany, Kulturni Kod/Nova Iskra in Serbia, Creative Edinburgh in UK and Factoria Cultural in Spain – and the European Business and Innovation Network.

The aim is to help creative hubs connect and collaborate across Europe. ECHN is building a network community of creative hubs by hosting a series of people to people encounters, and preparing a bespoke training programme for the needs and free use of creative hubs.

ECHN wants to champion the sector, to share stories about creative hubs, about what they are and how they operate. The ambition is to demonstrate that creative hubs contribute to the growth and the resilience of the creative sector, and to the economy as a whole.
