Next Generation is NOW

ACCESS Tampere Next Generation Culture Festival will celebrate cultural diversity and artistic experiences in the hometown of the ACCAC movement, Tampere, Finland.

The Festival takes place from the 20th to the 22nd of April 2023.

The first round of the Open Call is available until 15th August 2022.

The ACCESS Tampere aims to bring together artists, professionals, and amateurs from various cultures and backgrounds all as equal. The goal is to start developing a strong youth network of creative minds from the ACCAC Global network and beyond.

The whole production from the planning to implementation and accessibility of the festival will be done together with our inclusive team of youth. The spirit of the ACCESS Tampere is by the youth. Remarkable still is that the program will be selected to attract and interest of all generations.

ACCESS Tampere will be a platform to network, enjoy a variety of performances, participate in Working Sessions, and discuss radical inclusion and how to develop our communities together. In addition, it’s a forum to share information about equal participation and services – for everyone.

Festival welcomes proposals from all art fields: music, dance, film, circus... you name it. Get inspired and join!**
