From 9 to 12 June, the European Commission organises for the first time a Festival dedicated to the New European Bauhaus (NEB). Designed around three pillars, Forum, Fair and Fest and based physically in Brussels, at Gare Maritime & Mont des Arts, but equally around Europe and online, the Festival of the New European Bauhaus will bring together people from all walks of life to explore, debate and shape a beautiful, sustainable and inclusive future.
MULTIPLIERS will be represented at the Festival Fair by our project partner University of Ljubljana, who will engage festival-goers in science experiments linking science, sustainability and art. The Fair is co-created: out of the 316 applications received, 100 projects were selected to be displayed at NEB both on fixed and innovative mobile supports (from e-bikes to electrical tuk-tuks) scattered across the city centre.
Based on the original Bauhaus movement ideals – to revolutionise the relationships between different disciplines – but upgrading it to the challenges of the 21st century, the New European Bauhaus is, in the words of the European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, a “new cultural project for Europe”. After this first pilot edition, the festival should travel in the years to come to other European cities to spread awareness of the movement to all the corners of the Union.
