About / Contact / Friends

New Emergences Foundation is a platform for amplifying voices underrepresented within digital media culture, electronic music and sound art.
We work towards the acknowledgement, presence and inclusion of women, LGBTQIA+, disabled communities, and people of all other ethnic groups combined.

NE organizes a discussion series, a concert series, and numerous activities such as workshops, podcasts, and online publications. The foundation also provides advice through consultation and promotion of its affiliated network.

The New Emergences foundation is based in the Netherlands and consists of a group of composers, improvisers, performers, and researchers working in the field of electronic music and sound art. It is part of an engaged music and art community that acts on the notion of grassroots activism that desires the honest, the curious, and the provocative.

We are currently thinking how best to move forward with the organization. We will continue to listen, to refine, to nurture and to be as open to nuances as we can. Keeping our collective space as safe as possible is just as important to us, as our wish to keep listening and talking together. Thank you from all of us on the NE team, for supporting us thus far. Thank you to all who have helped bring the discussion to the table. Please continue to keep in touch with us, we value your thoughts and presence.
