About the ICon Arts Phenomenon

International Contemporary Arts (ICon Arts) ) is the story of an ambitious cultural project that turned into a complex, internationally renowned, independent international contemporary art phenomenon. Many generations of artists who have participated in ICon Arts eventually became important names on major concert venues, both in Romania and abroad.

ICon Arts is both an international art course (ICon Arts Academy) and a music and performance festival (ICon Arts Festival).

Started in 2003, as a series of summer classes, and focused on contemporary music, ICon Arts Academy aims to encourage the exchange of experience between young performers and composers, artists, masters and all those shaping the new generation.

On the fine line between formal and non-formal education, ICon Arts Academy has created the right environment for young artists to develop and gain access to international masterclasses.
Along with the Academy, the ICon Arts Festival naturally took shape, as a series of concerts starring academics, on the one hand, and on the other hand, big, worldwide renowned names of contemporary music.
