What is the NEU/NOW Festival?

The NEU/NOW Festival is an innovative platform for talented graduating or recent graduate artists – coming out of Higher Arts Education Institutions and Universities across Europe and beyond – to present themselves to a wider international audience within professional contexts. The Festival features the most excellent new artists now entering the professional arts arenas and will be a showcase of emerging creative talent.

An international jury of renowned artists and art historians will select a maximum of 150 from the nominated projects and these will be presented in the Online Festival. A number of projects will be selected for presentation in the Live Festival.
