DISCLAIMER: Due to the spread of Coronavirus TEH Easthub meeting is postponed to a later date. We will announce a new date as soon as possible.
TEH Easthub meeting is taking place in Kyiv, Ukraine. It will be hosted by TEH member centre IZONE / IZOLYATSIA.
Who is inviting?
Easthub is a subnetwork of cultural centres and organisations coming from the Central and Eastern European region. The main objective is to establish strong and active relationships between members from the region willing to share, learn and collaborate. Being a part of Trans Europe Halles, the Hub is helping Central and Eastern Europe members to take a more active role in participation in international network’s activities and initiating new projects within the region and beyond.
Who can participate?
Main priority are organisations from Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Hungary, Ukraine, Belarus, Russia, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan and from all the neighbouring countries. We are also open for everybody willing to collaborate with organisations in our region. We are inviting Trans Europe Halles members as well as other organisations from the region, willing to take part in the development of the network.
What to expect?
Program is divided into 3 general directions:
- networking for organisations in order to find common challenges and goals, mapping shared problems and expertise, possibilities for collaboration and co-creation of artistic programs;
- workshops for hands-on creation of collaborative projects and common activities facilitated by Easthub members;
- decision-making of network organisational issues, next meeting plans, etc.
IZOLYATSIA is organising evening outings to meet local organisations, venues and artists and art scene.

Kyiv (population 2.8 million) is Ukraine’s biggest and one of the oldest cities, founded around the 5th century CE. Once the capital of the powerful medieval kingdom known as Kievan Rus’ and later under the rule of Lithuanian and Polish kingdoms as well as the Russian Empire and Soviet Union, Kyiv preserves the traces of all these cultural strata.
Beside its famous golden-domed cathedrals and vast green spaces that still define the city’s landscape, Kyiv also boasts an impressive heritage of the Soviet neoclassical and modernist architecture, including the breathtaking industrial sceneries scattered along the riverside.
Moreover, in the recent years following the Euromaidan revolution, Kyiv has been blooming with grassroots cultural initiatives, and the local raves have made the headlines of most European media.
