Dear readers,

Welcome to TEH Newsletter #5 2013, featuring the latest news from Trans Europe Halles!
At the end of May, Trans Europe Halles held its TEH Meeting 75 in NOASS (Riga, Latvia), on the theme “Working with arts”. These meetings gathering all the members of the network are organised twice a year, and we see them as a birthplace for new collaboration and inspiration. And once again this meeting fulfilled this objective! A lot of time was kept for the members to network, to get to know each other better, and start new projects together. This month, for example, time-traveling postcards were sent between Estonia and Italy, while artists from France and Barcelona will breathe together during a performing festival next to Paris.
You will also find in this newsletter very important calls for artistic projects. Now is the time to apply for international projects connecting Europe and Asia with ASEF Creative Encounters, or to participate in workshops on sustainability through our Engine Room Europe project.
A lot of great opportunities to discover in this month's issue!

Trans Europe Halles is a European Network of Independent Cultural Centres. The TEH Newsletter is produced by the TEH Coordination Office in Lund, Sweden.
