 Wednesday 20 March – so save the date!  

We are delighted to announce that MINI ICAF will be taking place across the afternoon and evening of Wednesday 20 March, 2024, entirely free of charge. 

MINI-ICAF is a one-day event where we look back on the big ICAF festival of 2023 and look ahead to the next four years and the festival of March 2026. The goal of MINI-ICAF is to introduce and zoom in on our theme for the next four years and to facilitate conversations and meetings with which we forge possible future collaborations. We cordially invite everyone who is interested in thinking along with us and shaping the future! 

During MINI ICAF we are proud to be presenting a rich and diverse programme that includes a dedicated opening ritual, book, documentary and library launch, series of curated workshops, and a celebratory evening programme including a networking dinner and after party.  

The programme will officially begin with a warm welcome from ICAF Director Jasmina Ibrahimovic, who will focus in on the power of the sound of change and the deep reverberations the responses to this theme have provided for us as a festival. Jasmina will then introduce our opening ritual which will add further nuance and meaning to our connections to sound.
For the second part of the afternoon programme, we will be proudly launching our ICAF Documentary and Publication, both entitled “The Sound of Change”. The launches will include an introduction from the publication editor, alongside performative readings from one of the 

contributors. We will also be revealing our brand new ICAF digital library and archive. Together the collective launches will act as a celebration and a closing of our 2023 ICAF Festival Theme “The Sound of Change”, before we introduce our selected theme for 2025-2028.
Following from the launch programme, participants can join one of three workshop offerings that make up the late afternoon programme. Each workshop will have a different audience focus: local, national and international, as well as specific topics of focus, which each tie into the new ICAF thematic trajectory.
The evening programme will begin with a delicious networking dinner, after which we will dance the night away with live music.
