The venues, people, focus and locations changes every edition. We do not have a fixed format.
We aim to present a rich artistic program and work as a link to generate future collaborations by slowing down. We wish to make it easier to survive as an artist or art-worker by creating a safe space to speak and present your work.

Coasts seven editions has contributed to 340 reported collaborations in 12 countries.

We welcome you to explore our archives to discover previous productions, artists, curators, institutions, partners, podcasts, Art Prize, press and printed matter.
