Selected through ASEF Creative Networks 2nd edition
, Culture and Creative Hub Net
is a new network of Cultural and Creative Hubs managers between Asia and Europe. The project aims to identify, engage and understand the needs of creative and cultural hubs as well as to provide the necessary conditions for long-term network sustainability.
A Culture or Creative Hub is an infrastructure or venue that uses its space for networking, organisational and business development within the cultural and creative industries sectors. Examples include incubators, accelerators, fab-labs, artistic residencies
, etc. The concept is broad in definition as to ensure the group diversity is achieved and synergies across can be promoted. The set-up of the Culture and Creative Hub Net
aims at mapping the knowledge and networking gap that exists for creative hubs in Asia and Europe.
The kick-start meeting of the network is organised in Brussels, Belgium on 25 November 2015. The meeting will bring together 14 representatives of
Cultural and Creative Hub Managers from Asia and Europe to network and discuss opportunities to develop a long-term collaboration between hub
managers from both regions.
Project partners include ADDICT – Creative Industries Agency Portugal
(Portugal), ECBN – European Creative Business Network
(The Netherlands) and CI-USJ – Faculty of Creative Industries, University of Saint Joseph
