Professional Speed Dating

Tickets: Free entrance with registration

One-on-one meetings with curators and festival organisers

Our annual speed dating event is an opportunity for local artists and professionals (visual artists, researchers, musicians, label owners, curators, producers, etc.) to meet and/or present their work to and receive feedback from arts organisations, festivals, and independent curators from all over Europe, who will in turn have the opportunity to introduce their own initiatives and activities. Participants will have 8 minutes per "date" to speak with organisers before moving on to the next representative. 

Among those present will be members from the SHAPE platform – Sound Heterogeneous Art and Performance in Europe, which has had its support renewed for another 4 years. Members will also be present from ICAS - International Cities for Advanced Sound, a worldwide network that assembles over 35 independent organisations that support new music, audiovisual creativity, digital innovation and related fields.
