NEU/NOW LIVE festival and NEU/NOW online festival The NEU/NOW festival provides an innovative platform for the most exciting and creative NEU artistic talent NOW emerging from Higher Arts Education Institutions and Universities across Europe – to present themselves to wider European audiences in the NEU/NOW online festival and in the NEU/NOW LIVE festival.
The NEU/NOW Festival is: an opportunity for selected young artists to show their work, meet each other during the LIVE Festival and create new international partnerships; a place where audiences, producers and curators can see the most excellent artists and innovative projects emerging from the art schools and universities across Europe; a forum where emerging artists, producers, curators, cultural operators and policy makers can discuss future developments for the arts and share views on the cultural role of higher arts education institutions; a means of presenting an emerging generation of professional artists, drawn from across Europe, to the attention of a wide audience.
The European League of Institutes of the Arts received hundreds of nominations from art institutions from 30 countries from which an international jury selected 87projects to be part of the NEU/NOW online festival. In a second jury selection, 25 projects were selected out of those 87 to be part of the NEU/NOW LIVE festival.
This second iteration of the NEU/NOW online and the NEU/NOW LIVE festival includes projects arranged across the following five broad arts discipline categories: Visual Arts - Design - Theatre/Dance - Film
