Here and There is a cultural exchange program that organises and facilitates projects, exhibitions, workshops, lectures, discussions to reflect on contemporary life and to explore the future of traditions. Aware of the importance of increased cultural diversity and wider sharing of values, Here and There aims at setting up a network of international designers and creative practitioners in Europe and Asia, tie a new generation of creative entrepreneurs and offering opportunities to seek for unfamiliar territories for their professional development and to promote intercultural tolerance.
Here and There tirelessly grows its network and constantly explores new countries & cultures. From its inception, the diverse program of Here and There has encouraged the coming together of different people, from disciplines and cultures to maintain and develop creative trades for artistic, economic, social and cultural purposes. Here and There team believes that creative industries play a key role in knowledge management, identity development, preservation of values, and its potential should be further explored.
