The ELIA NEU/NOW Festival is an innovative international platform and showcase for talented graduating students and recent graduates (within one year of graduation) – of Higher Arts Education Institutions and Universities across Europe and beyond – to present themselves to a wide international audience.

The ELIA NEU/NOW Festival is:

  • an online and a live event that promotes artistic excellence through cutting edge presentations and activities;
  • an opportunity for selected emerging artists to show their work, meet each other, and create new international partnerships;
  • a space where informed audiences, producers, and curators can see the most excellent artists and innovative projects coming from art schools and universities across Europe and beyond;
  • a forum where artists, producers, curators, cultural operators, and policy makers can discuss future developments in the arts and share views on the cultural role of higher arts education institutions;
  • a means of presenting a new international generation of upcoming artists to the attention of a wide audience.

From the nominated projects, a maximum of 150 projects across all categories will be presented online at www.neunow.com, which is widely accessible to arts professionals and the public.
