The Impact of Your Support

Café Bauhaus Awards

In 2020, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen initiated the New European Bauhaus, in order to help shape more beautiful, sustainable and inclusive forms of living together in Europe. In response to this, EUYO’s own Café Bauhaus Awards were born.  This unique awards programme supports EUYO alumni in their next career steps by providing seed funding, business mentoring, project partners, branding and marketing support. The Café Bauhaus Awards are open to EUYO members and alumni who want to create innovative performances and projects that impact positively the communities where they and work.

Café Bauhaus recreates the inspiration of the Bauhaus movement in a modern guise, targeting young people, diverse and local audiences, as well as those new to classical music. The initiative also aims to connect high quality music with modern day issues such as climate change, sustainability, gender equality, diversity, equity and inclusion.

Projects are selected annually by an open call to all EUYO members and recent alumni. We currently award three awards each year, but with your support would have the opportunity to significantly expand the programme. There is also the opportunity for you to support in kind, such as by providing strategic business know-how and mentoring to the award winners.
