SHAPE: November newsread more
TodaysArt is a founding member of SHAPE (Sound, Heterogeneous Art and Performance in Europe) – a platform for popularizing innovative music and audio-visual art.
It consists of 16 festivals and art centres and aims to support, promote and exchange innovative and aspiring musicians and interdisciplinary artists with an interest in sound. SHAPE attempts to present a variety of idiosyncratic music and sonic art from all over Europe, and provide audiences and professionals with insightful lectures, talks and workshops by experts in various fields related to sound and performance.
Each year, the 16 involved associations will collectively choose 48 creatively strong artists and musicians to participate in a mix of live performances, residencies, workshops and talks across festivals and special events.
SHAPE is a three-year initiative, co-funded by the Creative Europe program of the European Union.
