Info about TEH Membership process

By joining us you will become part of a close-knit family of cultural centres from Aarhus to Zilina who support and empower each other. We will help you to find creative collaborations, learn from other members and become more resilient. The value of our network increases as the number and diversity of its members grows. The more members we have, the more we learn and the stronger we are.

As a member of the Trans Europe Halles network, you can:

  • attend our biannual meetings, which bring together hundreds of culture professionals from across Europe
  • get access to our internal groups. Receive our monthly newsletters and updates on the opportunities and news within the network
  • access all the fantastic resources we have collected and produced over the years to help expand your knowledge
  • take part in our capacity-building programme and travel opportunities
  • learn from other members across Europe – we’re experts in what we do and we’re happy to share our knowledge
  • start collaboration projects at EU level
  • find out about funding opportunities and EU grants
  • count on our advice and support at the most challenging times.

Want to join our network? Here are some basic guidelines:

  • you must be a European grassroots organisation – a non-profit but with a legal structure
  • you must be based in a repurposed building
  • you must have an autonomous, multidisciplinary social, artistic and cultural programme
  • you must support a democratic, pluralistic and equal society.

If you don’t meet all the requirements, but you share our values, you can always join our community as an Associate member and get involved with our work.
