Lucia de Carvalho WOMEX 21 by Eric van Nieuwland

As we settle into 2022, it's time for a fresh start. Today, we are very excited to officially open the Call for Proposals for WOMEX 22 that will be taking place in Portugal's coastal capital city, Lisbon.

The WOMEX call for proposals addresses all musicians, filmmakers and music professionals from across the globe. From all the received proposals, the official programme is selected by an independent, international and annually changing jury, also known as the Seven Samurai (2022 jury to be announced soon).

Proposals can be made in four categories

Conference | Showcase | Club Summit | Film

and can be submitted via

The deadline for proposals for WOMEX 22 is Friday, 18 March 2022.

WOMEX explicitly welcomes proposals from all backgrounds and encourages submissions, especially those that increase the international music scene's diversity - be it of culture, region, gender, styles, performance tradition, and more.
Please help us shape the programme with your ideas. Share and spread the word so that all artists, speakers, film-makers and music professionals of the global music scene worldwide can apply to be a part of the WOMEX 22 Programme.
