ECRN – european creative rooftop network

The European Creative Rooftop Network (ECRN) is a network of organisations, working ‘together apart’ to use European rooftops as creatively as possible. Why? Because the future lies in this partially undiscovered layer of urban space. From the generation of new places to meet and the creation of cultural breeding grounds, to innovative living labs exploring sustainability – anything is possible. Individually, all these European rooftop pioneers are already making every effort to scale the heights, but partnerships make you stronger and smarter. ECRN creates international connections to maximise local impact.

Let’s aim high!
