Today more than ever, cultural institutions have a duty to devote time, and to make spaces and resources available to new generations in order to provide for them time and space to express themselves, encourage reflection on issues of citizenship and society and support their ideas for our common wellbeing. What better way to stimulate this reflection than through participation and artistic creation? With Next Generation, Please!, Bozar wants to support and follow young people aged 15-26 who live as conscious, creative and articulate citizens in a society that needs to listen and hear their opinions and their ideas as never before.
This year 6 projects will be selected to be part of the 7th edition of Next Generation, Please!. Throughout the academic year, each selected group will collaborate and work together, share their ideas, aspirations and experience around current social issues and their reflections on our common future. During this process, they will develop together an artistic project.
The outcome of this process will be presented to a broader public during an interactive festival that will take place at Bozar in May 2022.
Deadline to apply: 20 June 2021
