Tickets starting from 5 euros

International Community Arts Festival (ICAF), based in Rotterdam, is a temporary ecosystem of music, art, theatre, dance and film. Community art is a worldwide phenomenon, and ICAF is one of the leading festivals highlighting this fact.

A community of artists from all over the world

Community arts practitioners from every continent gather in the online forum for this very special event, one that bridges the gap between professional artists and those who may not consider themselves as full-time artists, thereby celebrating the fact that the arts are for everyone.

This is a reciprocal sphere in which formally trained artists, musicians, actors and dancers take part in high-level performances with those who may not necessarily possess what is regarded as conventional training. The concept is something remarkable and sparks unique kinds of aesthetics, expressions and creativity.

The theme of the 2023 edition is titled "The Sound of Change" which will be reflecting on how the pandemic has changed peoples lives. The fantastic selection of artists and musicians will be presenting warm, alternative sounds to counter the difficult transition of the pandemic. 

The festival days are packed full of theatre and dance performances, music concerts and story circles. There are also in-depth discussions, informal talk shows and inspiring forums in which to share ideas.
