everything except the norm
Trans Europe Halles

TRANS EUROPE HALLES (TEH) is a Europe-based network of cultural centres initiated by citizens and artists. TEH has been at the forefront of re-purposing Europe’s industrial buildings for arts, culture and activism since 1983. As of 2018, TEH  has brought together 109 multidisciplinary cultural centres and other cultural organisations from across Europe.

Its mission is to strengthen the sustainable development of non-governmental cultural centres and encourage new initiatives by connecting, supporting and promoting them. TEH facilitates international cooperation, provide opportunities for learning and sharing, and promote the practice, impact and value of arts and culture.

To achieve this, TEH organise two international meetings every year, coordinate international projects, run professional development trainings, act as consultants for public and private organisations, and actively influence cultural policies. For the network, the power of arts and culture is in inspirational, transformative experiences that have the capacity to change people, perceptions and societies.

Bakelit Multi Art Center is member of the TEH network since 2011. In 2015 Bakelit hosted the 80th international TEH meeting.
