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, 2024 – July 14, 2025.

SHAPE+ aims to boost the careers of European artists through collaborative residencies, commissioned artworks andperformances. SHAPE+ artists will be invited to festivals and venues in Europe and beyond, as well as networking and career development events.
