Arts4all – The European Art Schools Network

Arts4allArts4all is a network of art- and cultureschool-associations and single art schools from 10 countries in Europe by now.

The network aims at inspiring the international and also the national work for cultural education in Art Schools and similar institutions. Topics and challenges of the cultural and artistic work with children and youth can be discussed, developed and exchanged in order to enhance the quality and find effective ways of e.g. political support. The network is starting as a non-formal “association” and meets once a year since 2005.

The Arts4all-network intends

  • to strengthen and represent Art Schools all over Europe
  • to develop and initiate cultural education by exchanging knowledge and people (youngsters and adults)
  • to attract media attention to arts education and its institutional basis especially in Art Schools

Trans Europe Halles

Trans Europe HallesTrans Europe Halles (TEH) is a European Network of Independent Cultural Centres that connects pioneering cultural actors of Moscow, Budapest and Belgrade with creative forces in Amsterdam, Helsinki and Berlin – to mention a few. The network currently has 47 members and 9 Friend organisations in 26 European countries.

Founded in 1983, the network now brings together about fifty multidisciplinary and socially engaged member centres throughout Europe. Most centres are located in buildings from industrial heritage and have taken important action in challenging the established cultural policy.

European Network for Cultural Cooperation

ENCC is an international network of arts and cultural centres, founded in Turnhout-Belgium in June 1994.
Europe is a beautiful mosaic of cultures; arts products and arts education can teach us, perhaps more than history itself, about daily life and global culture of a region. Europe becomes smaller as mobility increases and new technologies will lower barriers to co-operate with each other. This, and closer networking, will allow staff members of local cultural institutes to become strong intermediaries between the arts, the artists and the public, not only on a local level but also on a European level.
One of the primary conditions for a better co-operation and an intense cultural exchange is a better knowledge of each other and of the way we operate. Not only national cultural institutes have a mission to fulfil in Europe’s future. Also local actors in the cultural field do need a platform where they can meet, talk about their experiences, dream about projects in co-operation with partners all over Europe.
Multi-disciplinary cultural centres have their own way of acting, their own problems and fields of interest. The ENCC wants to be their platform: networking on a global level for acting stronger in the local community.


EurocitiesEUROCITIES is the network of major European cities. Founded in 1986, the network brings together the local governments of more than 130 large cities in over 30 European countries. EUROCITIES provides a platform for its member cities to share knowledge and ideas, to exchange experiences, to analyse common problems and develop innovative solutions, through a wide range of Forums, Working Groups, Projects, activities and events.

EUROCITIES gives cities a voice in Europe, by engaging in dialogue with the European institutions on all aspects of EU legislation, policies and programmes that have an impact on cities and their citizens. The network is active across a wide range of policy areas including: economic development and cohesion policy, provision of public services, environment, transport and mobility, employment and social affairs, culture, education, information and knowledge society, governance and international cooperation.
