House of Europe Festival

House of Europe Festival

House of Europe Festival is an annual festival of creativity and innovation, touring big Ukrainian cities. 

The centrepiece of the festival is the conference, supported by side-events — creative start-ups showcase, expo-zone, personal consultations, networking, and parties. This is the place for everyone involved in the creative business to get inspired by successful brands and get everything needed to become one: knowledge, acquaintances, and personal expert advice. 

We seek to shatter the geography of noticeable events in Ukraine and empower the regions. Each year we choose a regional centre and together with the local creative community whip up the neighbourhood.


Learn from EU and Ukrainian pros

Our speakers are founders and senior executives of businesses that shape creative industries in the EU and Ukraine. They will take the floor to cover all the issues of starting and running a successful enterprise.

Visit the festival, shaped by the city

The challenges of the local creative community become the main points of discussion at the conference. Other talks refer to the pressing issues like funding, marketing, legal registration, and intellectual property protections.


Book a personal consultation with an expert

Consult with the founders of prosperous creative enterprises. Each will spend 15 minutes to get to know your start-up and offer tailor-made advice.



Discover the challenges of creative entrepreneurship

CEOs of small, yet successful start-ups from the EU and Ukraine will tell the unvarnished truth about creative entrepreneurship. Founders of galleries, publishing houses, creative studios, fashion brands, eco and innovative businesses will share their mishaps and the motivation to go on. Some of them are our alumni.



Meet the owners of creative start-ups

Check products and meet people behind them in the expo zone for start-ups. Feel free to approach brands with questions on their ups and downs. 



Cheer for the most innovative start-up

Innovative Ukrainian start-ups will compete for the opportunity to visit the Creative Business Cup BRIGHT in Denmark to present their ideas to investors from all over the world. Ardent pitching with an international jury to see.


Live it up at film screenings, gigs, and parties

Get inspired by ads that made their way into history, independent movies, and local bands’ gigs. In the evening visit our outdoor parties with a great selection of music.
