The festivals and organizations of the SHAPE platform would also like to use this opportunity to invite the audience to show their support to Ukraine and its people who are now suffering because of Russia’s invasion by supporting their favourite Ukranian artists or making a donation.

Here, for instance, is a link, set up by the National Bank of Ukraine, for raising funds for Humanitarian Assistance to Ukrainians Affected by Russia’s Aggression:

And here, Help Ukraine Center where humanitarian aid and donations are accepted, and transported directly into Ukraine from a warehouse in Poland:


Each year, the 16 associations, involved in SHAPE, collectively choose 48 emerging European artists and musicians to participate in a mix of live performances, residencies, online engagements, workshops and talks across festivals and special events. The platform is supported by the “Creative Europe” programme of the European Union.

Museum of Transitory Art

MoTA –

Museum of Transitory Art

MoTA is a multidisciplinary platform dedicated to advancing the research, production and presentation of transitory, experimental, and live art forms.

MoTA is a museum without a permanent collection or a fixed space. Instead, its programs are realised in different locations and contexts in temporary physical and virtual spaces.

MoTA organizes and supports transitory art in the form of continuous events, exhibitions and educational programs both locally and internationally. As its name indicates, MoTA examines what a museum can be today and in the future.

MoTA is in constant search for the new, the uncertain, and the undefined.

MoTA works on several continuous programmes & projects. We run MoTA Point – a Space for Art & Ideas, we curate and produce the annual SONICA Festival, in addition to regular music programmes such as SONICA Series and SONICA Classics.

Within the years of running our residency programme, we’ve established T.R.I.B.E. – a network of residency spaces in the Balkans & Eastern Europe.

We’ve also initiated the research and archive platforms and Mediateque MoTA & Tomaž Brate. Our educational programmes serve a broader audience with ongoing workshops, talks, symposia, and internships.
