Incubator takes place from 22 – 27 March 2021 and is a week-long festival co-created by Codarts students, teachers and staff.

2021: Challenge accepted!

Incubator is the yearly playground for inspiration, interdisciplinary co-creation and wild ideas throughout Rotterdam. Everything programmed during the week is an adventure into combining disciplines, spaces and creative voices all around Rotterdam! We bring together more than 70 projects, 70 locations and 750 students as well as many guest coaches who guide the students in their exploration into site-specific and co-created work. This year we bring it all together with broadcasts of presentations, behind the scenes footage and discussions with the creators. All projects are challenged to find a way to happen in any measure which we might face. Together we will make it a fun, inspiring, and above all safe week.
