The Circle - Closing the Circle

The Circle project has brought together the skills, frameworks and inspiration that empower resilience for creative and non-creative entrepreneurs all across Europe.

The Circle program, closed with the Circle online festival, has been a cross-country, cross-disciplinary Erasmus+-funded program for European freelancers and entrepreneurs organized by a consortium of 4 partners: Impact Hub Bucharest and Zitec in Romania, Impact Hub Madrid in Spain and Matera Hub in Italy.

MateraHub was responsible for developing the training course on Creativity and showed how creativity positively impacts the wellness of a business.

Also the practices and frameworks that empower creative and non-creative businesses and maximize their potential were carried throughout the modules of the course.
