MINISTRY OF CULTURE AND COMMUNICATION
In January 2016, the Ministry of Culture founded 4 European Creative Hubs : the Maison de la Danse in Lyon, the Théâtre national de Bretagne, the Maison de la Culture in Amiens and le phénix scène nationale Valenciennes.
The road map indicating the various missions of the ECH is still in progress. Their shared objective consists in supporting French artists by enabling them to cross borders and to enjoy global exposure.
HAUTS DE FRANCE REGION
The HDF region intends to put its regional talents and their global exposure at the very heart of its cultural policy. Most companies supported by the ECH come from this region. TheEuropean Creative Hub has a will to promote our regional talents’ global exposure.
In late 2016, le phénix was recognized as serving the public interest. On 1st January 2017, its management responsibility was transferred from the City to Valenciennes Métropole.
Valenciennes Métropole supports the European Creative Hub, thus acknowledging its national exposure thanks to the artists it supports, some of whom already toured the world.
