Europe’s singularity is characterized by a rich diversity of artistic situations and sociological contexts. The ULYSSES Network aims to exploit this singularity to the fullest. In this spirit, it is the goal of the ULYSSES partner institutions to propose and construct a variety of opportunities that target particular needs and offer unique work conditions to young artists.
Composers, performers, conductors and ensembles will all be able to undertake projects providing them with rich and diverse experiences enabling them to develop new relations to their social context, to their fellow artists and to diverse audiences.
