+ 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.
