European Creative Hubs Network 

European Creative Hubs Network is a two year project. British Council is leading the work, in partnership with six European creative hubs – Bios in Greece, Addict in Portugal, 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 project is co-funded by the European Commission. 

British Council Turkey supported the participation of six creative hub founders and managers at the European Creative Hubs Forums held in Belgrade and Athens, thus encouraging exchanges of ideas and the growth of the Network, which features currently more than 100 hubs from all over Europe.
