Open Up to Eurovision Song Contest Rotterdam 2020

OPEN CALL: Eurovision Song Contest Rotterdam 2020


Duncan Laurence Eurovision Rotterdam

Arttenders was asked by Host City Rotterdam and Rotterdam Make it Happen to be part of the creative city dressing activities that will flank the live shows of the Eurovision Song Contest. In May 2020, this huge production lands in Rotterdam Ahoy, and we’re proud to showcase the best of Rotterdam to the world. Eager to join the club? We might be looking just for you to complement our team. Put yourself forward!

Design our mobile stage

As we were asked to get the whole city involved, Arttenders is building an eye-catching mobile stage that will travel around town. This stage will be a dynamic object that aims to arouse curiosity and bring both Rotterdammers and Eurovision Song Contest visitors together and inspire them to open up.

Are you a graphic designer that loves creating eye-catching designs? Do words like festive, unexpected, tongue-in-cheek sound like music to your ears? We’re curious about your creative practice. Show us what you got!

Unfortunately, the deadline for graphic designers has already passed.

Bring your performance

What is about to happen on this stage, you ask? Well, a lot. We are putting together a curated mix of great acts and performances that emphasize the creative DNA of the city. You can be part of the line-up!

We’re looking for performance artists and theatre-makers to create recurring, interactive experiences in line with our concept. Does your signature speak to a wide audience and are you up for a great collaboration? Will you add value to our overall narrative? Then we are looking forward to meeting you.

How to apply

Convince us of your talent by sending us a relevant portfolio that explains visually what you do and what experience you have. Next to that, write a short motivation that elaborates on why we can’t miss out on you during the Eurovision Song Contest (max. 150 words).

Performers can still apply until Sunday the 1st of March (subject line ‘Open Call: performer’).
