First and foremost we aim to cooperate with both formal and informal platforms of artists that are still in their studies. Not all “squad” members are under 32 years of age due to our effort to not only ensure multinational team cooperation and knowledge sharing, but also generational knowledge exchange. Since the festival itself is designed as multi-genre event, we are able to link together artists from different fields of art.

1. Engagement of young artists in the production of an international festival in all its – artists relevant – phases, followed by production of multi-genre performances, preferably done by nationality mixed teams.

2. Production of light and interactive performances with artistic depth focusing on temporal and spatial specifics and societal issues in the V4 region with strong emphasis on historical heritage and shared values.

Their joint performances often reflect current state of society and societal issues in indirect connotations with space for individual imagination… meaning, each spectator perceives the performed narrative according to their personality, which leaves opening for, partly, self-interpretaion, but most important, individual self-reflection, which in the end boosts the impact of morals told. The emphasis is put on youth in terms of young artists from V4 region in order to help them gain necessary experience in promoting of their own work, emphasising team effort in multinational environment, skills acqusition, knowledge sharing, inclusion and networking during relatively big festival production and prepare them to for art market entry after their studies.
