The Creative FLIP team is thrilled to announce
the official start of the TWIN HUBS program!
We received 68 applications from 29 countries across Europe and EU-neighbouring countries! Our Creative FLIP team has evaluated the applications carefully and did the relevant matching process taking into consideration the specificities of the selected applicants (location, field of interest, expectations, etc). 24 twinings resulted from this process.
The kick-off of the program was the Twinning Ceremony that took place in the context of the Creative FLIP & BAUTOPIA conference, as a closed event on 10 October in Porto.
The goal of the ceremony was to bring together all the participants so as to understand how the others work and function and to start the bonding process. This happened successfully through joint presentations in which each hub manager presented themselves and their creative communities, as well as the project they are going to be working on together in the course of their twinning.
What is coming next?
The first part of the blended mobility begins.
From October till January, hub managers and creative communities will meet online (6 meetings), exchanging knowledge and experiences, identifying best practices and starting to work on their final community event.

Creative FLIP P2P Exchange Program
Twin Hubs 2022/2023
TWIN HUBS is a blended mobility, part of the Creative FLIP Peer2Peer Program. It is based on the “sister cities” model and addresses creative hubs that wish to establish new and long-lasting cooperation with another hub.
Thus, two hubs apply jointly or are matched to form a TWINNING. Starting in September 2022, both hubs commit to exchange and organise a blended mobility over the period of one year. The blended mobility combines online meetings, community exchange and a classic P2P exchange between hub members.
In 2022/23 Creative FLIP supports 25 twinnings, involving a total of 50 creative hubs throughout the EU and its neighbourhood.
Each twinning enables 4 hub representatives (2 of each Twin Hub) to exchange online and in person and to engage in a mutual learning experience. Jointly, both hubs will organise and implement a community event at the end of the program.
