The title of Trans Europe Halles’ spring conference 97 is “Arts of Survival”.

We are living in tumultuous times, the world is changing rapidly, and we all must adapt and find ways to survive. What kind of difficulties do (independent) art and culture centres face in these changing times and how will we survive? How can our centres support each other and our communities?  

The term "Arts of Survival" encompasses the wisdom, abilities, and principles essential for navigating these difficult times to enjoy a culturally diverse and exciting future.  

What is Trans Europe Halles?

Founded in 1983 Trans Europe Halles (TEH) unites 162 grassroots arts and culture centers with strong DIY, independent, community driven and alternative values, across more than 40 countries. TEH supports grassroots communities in their endeavours to reclaim abandoned spaces and transform them into vibrant hubs for arts and culture. Together,  as a network, we regenerate communities, neighbourhoods and cities, and we promote social, environmental and spatial justice.
