2ND INTERNATIONAL CALL FOR PROGRAMMES #LIEDINNOVATION

Many thanks for all the wonderful applications! The submission is now closed. We will announce the results on the 15th of December 2020.

The overall concept of the RHONEFESTIVAL embodies the extraordinary potential of the “Lied” in the 21st century. This is shown in particular through the international call for project proposals #LIEDINNOVATION. The festival stands for immersive, socio-cultural formats that fuel current affairs and promotes new artistic approaches, particularly through the #LIEDINNOVATION, while acknowledging people’s basic right for culture.

For the second #LIEDINNOVATION we are looking for YOUR VISION of a 21st century song recital. In particular we look forward to concepts that contextualise the Lied in relation to current social and environmental issues, that surpass the traditional concert format or that deal with urban spaces versus the natural landscape (of the Valais).
