The artists participating in our project are not sitting still during the pandemic. Léa Dant, the woman behind Théâtre du voyage intérieur, made a new performance during spring last year. Her street theater performance is called Youve Got A Message!.
In the past eight months, for most of the street art professionals it's been nearly impossible to get together in real life. Luckily, we live in a day and age of great technology. That makes it possible to still meet up. One of the most recent meetings Roundabout Europe participated in, was FRESH STREET#4, an online event hosted by Circostrada, ARTCENA and FNAS. Around 80 festivals and organizers attended the presentation, most of them from important European festivals.
Spoffin and Greenwich+Docklands International Festival (GDIF) joined forces to give artists the opportunity to pitch their plans and ambitions for 2021. The five artists participating in this year's edition of Roundabout Europe, also presented their plans for next year during GDIF & Spoffin Outdoor Arts Online Pitch.
Greenwich + Docklands International Festival (GDIF) and Spoffin in association with OutdoorArtsUK join forces to present an online pitching session, featuring British, Dutch and other international artists and professionals. GDIF & Spoffin Outdoor Arts Online Pitch will take place on Friday 28th of August.
Last February, the festivals and artists participating in Roundabout Europe 2020 had a wonderful kickoff meeting in the Czech Republic. We talked about ambitions, expectations and most of all, we got to know each other a little better. We were all looking forward to a new season of residencies, great festivals and new creations.
Amersfoort - February 13, 2020 - Five new projects are selected to participate in the second edition of Roundabout Europe. This project encourages and maintains the circuit of residencies and festivals for outdoor arts in Europe.
Five outdoor arts festivals and five artists will collaborate again in Roundabout Europe 2020! Street artists based in countries eligible for Creative Europe may apply until 15 December 2019 for two residencies in two different countries in 2020.
The European Union has granted the application for co-financing of Roundabout Europe. Dutch street arts festival Spoffin is leader of this project, a collaboration of five European festivals who are joining forces to give outdoor theater a new impulse with a circuit of residencies and support for professional makers.
