RSS - Call for applications by Trans Europe Halles - Deadline : 28/01/18


In the framework of the project Factories of Imagination (2017-2021), Trans Europe Halles is addressing a growing demand: to support civil society initiatives in repurposing post-industrial buildings for cultural and social uses. This demand is exceptionally strong in certain areas of Europe, such as the Balkans, Eastern Partnership and Southern Mediterranean countries.

Being true to our mission to strengthen the sustainable development of non-governmental cultural centres and encourage new initiatives, we are launching our new Startup Support Programme. The programme aims to assist leaders of civil society organisations in their endeavour to set up cultural centres in repurposed buildings.


In its first edition, February to August 2018, we are looking for three emergent cultural centres from the Balkans region – focus region of this first edition – to take part in the programme.


Deadline : 28 January 2018
