We are the hub for opportunities for creative and professional exchanges, but we are also a community. Participants of our programmes share a lot: they are the change-makers, the enthusiasts, the experts, and explorers in their sector.
To unite thousands of these like-minded people, we created a community for participants of our programmes — the platform to meet and plan the next big thing.
Acquaintances all around Europe
27 EU countries and Great Britain, 24 Ukrainian regions, and 6 professional sectors — the community brings together people with different geographies and professional backgrounds. They are your future partners, speakers, or experts to provide feedback on your ideas, and simply your friends.
Communication with fellow-minded people
Keep in touch, whatsoever the kilometres between you. Discuss everyday issues in the private group on Facebook and leave the big plans for meetings in person at our networking events.
Even more grants
We have already supported your idea, and we are ready to do it again. We have a special grant programme to support professional development and projects organised by our community members. After the full-scale war had started, more than 200 alumni got our emergency stipends to cover their essentials and get back to work.
Announcements to stay tuned for
The community is alive: we will be adding new opportunities and large-scale networking events, together with members organising meetups and discussing professional issues. For you to keep up to date with the events, we announce all of the important news in the private Facebook group and update the portal regularly.
We will send the invitations to join the community to participants of our programmes via email. Usually, we will invite those who are done with final reports.
We invite participants of International Mobility Grants, Individual Project Grants Study Tours, Digital Labs, Creative Business Academy, as well as Cultural Transformation Lab’s networking trips.
We also invite participants of Creative Enterprise Ukraine, Active Citizens Camps, and Сultural Leadership Academy that participated in the programmes in December 2019 and later.
Teams and organisations that have participated in International Cooperation Grants, Digital Cooperation Grants, Translation Grants, Infrastructure Grants, Creative Youth Grants, won the Hatathon “Hack The Culture”, or received the follow-up grants afterwards must choose two people each to represent them in the community. We will ask you to do so in an email to your organisation.
The participants of workshops, discussions, and crash courses of Cultural Transformation Lab, Stipends for Filmmakers offered in cooperation with Netflix, and Stipends for professionals in culture and creative industries are not considered alumni, but we hope they will join us after participating in another House of Europe programme.
