CTM Festival 2020

Over the last breathless months, we have been following pandemic news, attempting to adapt and learn from ongoing trials and discussions within cultural communities, exchanging ideas with artists and actors in the music world, and sharing moments of hope, uncertainty, and disappointment together with everyone. It seems that there is still a long way to go, in terms of navigating and emerging from the pandemic with a transformed personal and collective vision/strength. With the »Transformation« theme CTM 2021 hopes to contribute to ongoing critical reflections and encourage artistic experimentation that could lead us to new and better practises.
