I’m super happy to announce that in July 2022 I was selected to be one of the artist of SHAPE+ platform for the next year (July22-July23, as Forces)! I’m actually travelling next Sunday-Monday to Prague to introduce myself to the network and meet the other artists + festival members, excited! I don’t know yet what other things this year will be bring but looking very forward for it.

Here is my SHAPE+ page:

If you are unfamiliar of SHAPE+ here is a short introduction:

SHAPE+ is a new European platform for innovative music and audiovisual art co-financed by the Creative Europe programme. Running for the next three years, SHAPE+ will foster exceptional emerging talent, connecting them to local communities and audiences through collaborative residencies with multiple artistic outcomes, commissioned artworks, as well as one-off presentations and performances. Combining an open call and a curatorial selection, the platform members will select a roster of artists to support each year.

SHAPE+ initially consists of 13 partners in 13 countries with plans for further expansion, while adopting an interdisciplinary approach and committing to social and environmental awareness.
SHAPE+ builds upon the previous SHAPE platform, which from 2015 to 2022 supported 336 emerging European artists and presented their work at festivals, events and venues in numerous countries across Europe and beyond.

SHAPE+ is a three-year initiative, co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
