The projects undertaken in the Trans Europe Halles network centres grow from civil needs and address social and artistic issues. They are conducted within the local context but provide an international perspective. The Trans Europe Halles projects aim to promote co-operation and understanding between cultural organisations across Europe.
The principal focus of Trans Europe Halles is the two annual network meetings. Time, energy and resources are invested in the assemblies to make them dynamic, informative and relevant to the members’ needs. Each meeting has a theme of interest to the network’s members and the autumn meeting is combined with a specialist seminar or conference. Trans Europe Halles meetings are hosted by member centres in rotation.
