We Are Europe 2019-2021


We Are Europe (WAE) is embarking on a new 3-year cycle (2019-2021) under the auspices of the Creative Europe programme. Having presented 24 events over the course of the last 3 years, inviting 255 artists and 245 speakers to appear in front of more than a million people in 8 countries, WAE is ready to write a new chapter in its history.

We Are Europe is a unique and innovative cooperation project, aiming to group together and develop synergies between 8 European cultural structures spread throughout the continent, each of which organises both a music festival and a forum addressing wider issues relating to the evolution and future of culture, particularly in the field of creation.
The festivals who will write this next chapter in the We Are Europe story are c/o pop Festival and c/o pop Convention (Cologne, Germany), Unsound Festival and Unsound Discourse (Krakow, Poland), Elevate Festival and Discourse & Activism (Graz, Austria), Insomnia Festival and Insomnia Insights (Tromso, Norway), Nuits Sonores Festival and European Lab Camp fòrum (Lyon, France), Reworks festival and Reworks Agora (Thessaloniki, Greece), TodaysArt festival and TodaysArt Context (The Hague, Netherlands), and Sónar and Sónar+D (Barcelona, Spain).

The 8 artistic teams that make up We Are Europe have come together once more, this time to choose its fine selection of 64 personalities from across Europe. The selection of these cultural figures will play a central role in shaping the project’s activities in 2019, in Europe and beyond.

Meet here the 64 personalities: artists, musicians, writers, researchers, coders, philosophers, filmmakers, etc., that are part of this new cycle of We Are Europe.
