This year’s Hubs Meetup is organised by the European Creative Hubs Network with the support of FABER and FOR, our hosting hubs in Timișoara, European Capital of Culture 2023.
BauTopia 3 puts the spotlight on creative hub managers and sets up a platform to reflect on the professional practice of creative-hubs-making. By uniting professionals and experts, BauTopia 3 invites participants to join a series of interactive sessions and networking activities that will facilitate an exchange of stories, know-how and inspirations that form the mosaic of the diverse ECHN family.
BauTopia means “building a place”, setting hub managers as craftful place-makers. Creative hubs are places that coin alternative solutions of place-making, becoming forges of experimentation, innovation and impact. From this perspective, hub managers are the forgers of possibilities and will have the chance to share their tools, practices and experiences with their peers during BauTopia. For this, the theme of this year’s Meetup is “Creative hubs as forges of possibilities”.
Most of the activities of the program are led by hub managers from the ECHN community. The program is composed of a series of guided networking activities and themed interactive sessions, ending up with the pitching of the next ECHN Workshop.
Our host will be FABER, a long-standing member of the ECHN family. The FABER team will welcome us in their hub’s spaces and help us explore the city of Timișoara, European Capital of Culture 2023.
