SHAPE Platform

SHAPE Platform

4 years x 16 organisations x 48 artists With a little bit of Les Siestes Electroniques inside :)

SHAPE Platform is a 4-year initiative co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union, the SHAPE project reunites 16 European non-profit organisations to create a platform that aims to support, promote, and exchange innovative and aspiring emergent musicians and interdisciplinary artists with an interest in sound.

SHAPE thus attempts to present a variety of idiosyncratic sounds from all over Europe, and to provide audiences and professionals with insightful lectures, talks, and workshops by experts in various fields related to sound and performance.

All 16 organisations will collectively choose 48 musicians to participate in a mix of live performances, residencies, workshops and talks across member festivals and special events. A new pool of 48 artists will be selected subsequently for each of years two and three of the SHAPE initiative.
