New Bauhaus Festival 2024


The New Bauhaus Festival 2024 will take place on April 9 – 13, bringing together people from all across the globe to share their vision and actions for a future that is sustainable, beautiful, and inclusive.

Organised by the European Commission in cooperation with the Belgian Presidency of the Council of the European Union, this year’s Festival edition will feature a diverse and fully-packed programme with discussion panels, exhibitions, art performances, and much more.

The Festival will also feature the New European Bauhaus Prizes, recognising projects, designs, and ideas that align with the movement’s commitment to shaping a sustainable, beautiful, and inclusive future for Europe. A total of 20 winners from all across Europe and beyond will be awarded this year at an official Prize ceremony.

A project from Latvia — Pitraga Pietura (Pitrags Stop) by MADE Arhitekti has been nominated for the New European Bauhaus Prizes and is among the 50 finalists selected from more than 530 entries from all over Europe.

During the Festival, esteemed figures from global industry leaders, opinion thinkers, innovation experts, artists, and cultural figures will get together to discuss crucial topics, including shelter and living environments, land and water, sustainable fashion, and human well-being, all within the context of environmental changes.

The Festival programme will span five days across four tracks of activities:
