New Music: New Audiences is 17 nations, 16 national music organisations and 31 ensembles and orchestras cooperating intensively across borders for the purpose of researching and developing new concert forms and new ways of disseminating contemporary music.
Eight European festivals have joined forces to stimulate the coproduction and transnational circulation of new works by the great European artists of tomorrow and in so doing to encourage the artistic renewal of the contemporary performing arts in Europe.

Now they are ready to take an important next step in their careers, taking on projects on a larger scale that will circulate in Europe and reach a wider audience.
