SHAPE+ platform announces open call for 2023/2024

SHAPE+ platform for innovative music and audiovisual art, co-funded by the European Union, announces a new open call for artist submissions for its next working period: July 15, 2023 – July 14, 2024

SHAPE+ aims to foster exceptional emerging talent, connecting them to local communities and audiences through collaborative residencies with multiple artistic outcomes, commissioned artworks, as well as one-off presentations and performances. Combining an open call and a curatorial selection, the participating festivals and venues will select a roster of artists to support each year.

The artists chosen for SHAPE+ must be willing to choose greener forms of travel when such choice is possible, and are expected to participate either in residencies that include artistic collaboration or one-off performances and presentations as well as publicity activities, educational events and artist meet-ups.

Artists can see more detailed eligibility criteria in the application form.

Deadline: March 31, 2023 23:59 CET

Support for Ukraine
With the war in Ukraine having passed a one-year mark very recently, SHAPE+ would like to encourage its partners and audience to resist becoming jaded by news about Russia’s invasion of this sovereign country – our help and support is needed as strongly as ever.
