open call enoa: Immersive Residencies #2

For the second time, enoa launches an open call to welcome artists, makers, creators – to participate in our Immersive Residency programme.


This programme is about welcoming a cohort of brilliant mid-career artists who do not have opera within their creative practice and who are curious about adding it. The offer is a year-long introduction to opera through a series of workshops and a bespoke relationship with an enoa institution.

enoa’s objective is to break down existing barriers to the opera field, to meet and create a cohort of new artists, to broaden its perspectives, in the hope that more artists are inspired to make opera in the future. That said, there is no defined output for this programme. It is a process of exploration and a chance to find out a bit more about opera as an art form. 

Discover the manifesto and commitments to equality and diversity.
