Trans Europe Halles is one of the oldest and most dynamic cultural networks in Europe. It has been at the forefront of repurposing abandoned buildings for arts, culture and activism since 1983. The network is based in Sweden and has 127 members in 36 different countries across Europe – from Spain to Ukraine.  

The ENCC represents over 5,000 cultural centres throughout Europe, with programmes and activities that aim to empower them and their communities. The ENCC’s main action lines are capacity building, networking and advocacy.

Maltfabrikken cultural centre is a member of Trans Europe Halles. Founded as a malting house in 1861 and closed down in 1998, the old factory was falling apart and facing demolition when a group of local people decided to save its iconic red buildings and turn them into a centre for all kinds of cultural and creative activities.
