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 and performances. SHAPE+ artists will be invited to festivals and venues in Europe and beyond, as well as networking and career development events. Combining an open call and a curatorial selection, the participating festivals and venues select a roster of artists to support each year.

The artists chosen for SHAPE+ should be committed to greener forms of travel when such choice is possible, and are expected to participate in collaborative residencies and one-off performances and presentations as well as publicity activities, educational events and artist meet-ups. 

For whom

This is a call for musicians and artists working with sound for the third year of the SHAPE+ platform for innovative music and audiovisual art co-funded by the European Union. The aim of the platform is to support the career development and networking of selected artists, to expand their knowledge and skills and to give them the opportunity to participate in collaborative residencies and live performances across Europe.

If you will be among the 51 selected artists, you will join the SHAPE+ artist roster for a period 15 July 2024 – 14 July 2025. As a SHAPE+ artist, you will take part in the annual two-day Artist Meet-up, we will promote you through weekly interviews and social media as well your activities and work (music, guest mies, album or track premieres) through our media partners (NTS Radio, Resonance FM, Wire magazine, etc.)

Furthermore, 17 forward-thinking festivals (such as Unsound Krakow, CTM Berlin, UH Fest Budapest or Out.Fest Barreiro) and venues (such as Inkonst Malmö, MeetFactory Prague or Mutant Radio Tbilisi) will be choosing artists from the roster for their program in the said period.
Please note that SHAPE+ is primarily not a vehicle to secure more gigs. If you expect high volume of bookings, you might be disappointed;
