Trans Europe Halles
Mary Conlon has been elected to the Executive Committee of Trans Europe Halles during the General Assembly at Nová Cvernovka in Bratislava, Slovakia. Trans Europe Halles is one of the oldest and most dynamic cultural networks in Europe. They have been at the forefront of repurposing abandoned buildings for arts, culture and activism since 1983, and are made up of 135 members in 39 countries across Europe.
Twice a year, the network meets to connect with other cultural change-makers, to start conversations, and to exchange knowledge. The meetings are hosted by different members and reflect the diversity of the network. Together, we get to know the challenges facing different regions, and explore topics that matter to us all. Trans Europe Halles collaborates regionally and thematically through various Hubs and projects, and forms partnerships based on common interests, goals and ideas.
Trans Europe Halles is a community with transparent, human-centred and democratic governance. During the annual General Assembly, members approve the budget, final accounts, and network strategy. Each member has one vote, regardless of the size of the centre. Every two years, a new Executive Committee is elected to form the governing and policy-making body. teh.net
