There is a lot going on in February and March. Here are some news from our Members…

Bitamine Faktoria / Irun, Spain
TEH Member, Bitamine Faktoria, invites young artists from all over Europe to join the project team of Kontenporanea festival.
Kontenporanea is a contemporary art festival organised by and for the local artistic community. The project started in 2015 in collaboration with the City Council of Irun. It celebrates its fourth anniversary this year and will take place on 17-19 May.
The idea is that artists(between the age of 18 and 30) are responsible for the contents of the festival and its implementation. They do everything themselves from developing an idea to managing the project and communicating it to the wider audience. Each new edition of the festival is organised by a new project team (committee) that consists of several people with different backgrounds (arts, communication, cultural management, etc.). The committee works under the mentoring of the entire Bitamine Faktoria team. It’s a great opportunity for artists to learn more about project management and to get hands-on experience.
For more information about the project, please, contact Carlos Sánchez at komunika@bitamine.net.
Please, mind that this opportunity is for artists under 30.
