Creative Hub Euregio Speed-dates

December 3 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

What opportunities are laying in the Euregio?

Which galleries, artistic residency, design initiatives, institutions, museums, curators, but also alternative exhibition spaces, theatre, fab labs, creative hubs, music venues, performing scenes, exist in the Euregio? How to develop a project in a city of the Euregio and who to contact? How can I develop my projects? Are you looking for answers?

Well, take the chance to speed date with leading creative professionals living and working in the Euregio. A fantastic chance to not only meet them, but have instant advice and be immediately connected or addressed to the right person. The Euregional speed-dates are the perfect chance for sharing your ideas, projects, needs and dreams to an interdisciplinary group of experts.
