Event History

For the 5th consecutive year, we put all our passion and expertise into scouting promising talents and giving them and their work access to a broad public. Why? Because we believe that all artists deserve the opportunity to be seen and recognised (and some even awarded) for their artistry - No matter what their discipline, where they are from or who they know.
