Open call for Conference Participants - MINU FESTIVAL 2022

MINU Conference 2022 is a 4 day conference which will bring together young composers and sound artists based in the Nordic region for performance lectures, showcases and inter-Nordic networking. MINU festival takes place in Copenhagen on November 9-13th.

Each conference day will kick off with a performance lecture to set the theme for the day's presentations: Embodiment, Symbols, Language, and Free for All.


Active participants will do a 30 minute presentation about a topic related to their artistic work or research interest. The presentation should be related to one of the four topics as outlined above (note: the last day is a free-for-all regarding themes).

Selected active participants will receive financial support for travel and accommodation in addition to a compensation of 2500 dkk (45 000 isk) for their presentation. RASK will send up to 5 participants to the festival. Selected participants are expected to attend the full program of the festival on November 9-13.

Whether presenting or not, the conference will be a forum where artists within the area can meet and build inter-nordic networks as well as gain new inspiration and knowledge. For this reason it is also possible to participate in the conference as a passive participant.
