Trans Europe Halles

Trans Europe Halles (TEH) is a Europe based network of independent cultural centres initiated by citizens and artists with 102 members and associates in 33 countries.

TEH has been at the forefront of repurposing Europe’s industrial buildings for arts, culture and activism since 1983. Our mission is to strengthen the sustainable development of non-governmental cultural centres and encourage new initiatives by connecting, supporting and promoting them.

We facilitate international cooperation and provide opportunities for learning and sharing. To achieve this, we organise two international meetings every year, coordinate international projects, run professional development trainings, support members in times of troubles and actively influence cultural policies.
For TEH, the power of culture is in inspirational, transformative experiences that have the capacity to change people, perceptions and societies.

Recently, TEH was awarded the execution of the European project ‘Cultural and Creative Spaces and Cities’ (see project description). For this project, we are very happy now to be looking for a Project Manager.
