Trans Europe Halles

TransEuropeHalles is a stimulating platform for exchange, support and co-operation between its members The network of TransEuropeHalles brings together a great diversity of independent, multi-functional and multi-disciplinary cultural centres, located throughout Europe.

The TransEuropeHalles centres are established at the heart of former productive or commercial spaces whose original functions have been abandoned and redirected towards the conviviality and creativity of today’s artistic and cultural practices.

Each of the organisations in the TransEuropeHalles network is distinguished by its own unique environment, organisation and project. However, their teams all share the same spirit of support for young artists, new talents, innovative approaches and emerging cultures. The projects undertaken in the TransEuropeHalles centres are positioned at the interface between the social and artistic fields, involving themselves in local contexts while developing international perspectives. The member centres of TransEuropeHalles pay close attention to new forms of artistic expression.

Yet similar approaches began to multiply and are still multiplying all over Europe, in answer to the growing demand which younger generations have expressed for intermediate, flexible, liveable spaces.

Factories, warehouses, covered markets, dairies, slaughter houses or barracks are remodelled into open spaces: the TransEuropeHalles centres offer places for production and creation, presentation, training and social intercourse.
