Launched in 2003, ICon Arts has become one of the most complex independent European events in contemporary arts.
Each year, Sibiu County (Romania) hosts around 150 young musicians, dancers, actors and photographers from all over the world, which are drawn here by the exceptional environment for experiencing inter-cultural exchanges, professional development and self-management programs, concerts, competitions and workshops held by renowned international artists.
Although mainly focused on music (composition, musicology, solo performance, chamber music, orchestra, jazz), ICon Arts sections are also oriented towards reaching a wider perspective. This is why each edition has introduced something new, from dance to drama, instrumental theatre, visual arts and photography.
Besides attending seminars and Festival’s events, all students are actively involved in concerts and happenings that later often lead to their own artistic projects that are enthusiastically supported and promoted by ICon Arts.
Since 2009 our young and enthusiastic team has worked with valuable regional representatives in Asia, Middle East and Europe, as they are all key-members of the international artistic community.
In brief, here you’ll find talented people, great atmosphere, beautiful places and fabulous teachers!
