The Festival of the New European Bauhaus

In April 2024, the European Commission organises the second edition of the New European Bauhaus Festival and you can be part of it! Apply to one of the four calls by 15 September 2023.

What is the Festival?

The Festival brings together people from all walks of life to debate and shape our future. A future that is sustainable, inclusive and beautiful. In 2024, the Festival will centre on the theme of ‘Resources for all’ exploring subtopics such as shelter and living environments, land and water, fashion and human wellbeing in light of the changing environment. This inclusive and human-centric approach aims to inspire and engage individuals in embracing sustainable choices and fostering a deep connection to the New European Bauhaus movement.

When and where does it take place?

The Festival will take place in April 2024. Core activities will be taking place in vibrant Brussels with captivating satellite events spanning across the European Union and beyond. Details on the exact dates will be made available on this page in due course. Stay tuned!

What are the different elements of the Festival?

The Festival encompasses four key pillars:

  • Forum - a platform for engaging discussions and the exchange of ideas surrounding the New European Bauhaus. 
  • Fair - a laboratory and exhibition highlighting projects and prototypes that align with and support the core values of the New European Bauhaus.  
  • Fest - a celebration that unites culture, art, and conviviality, serving as a moment of collective rejoicing, honouring freedom of expression and embracing radical, innovative, and disruptive ideas and visions. 
  • Satellite events: events and initiatives organised independently in Brussels and beyond, with core activities in line with the New European Bauhaus values

Calls for applications

Interested organisations and individuals can propose their own activities, projects or satellite events to one of the three calls to become a spotlight feature of The Festival. The fourth call is the call for media partners.
