Founded in 2017 by Daniel & Sebastian Selke, Q3A has hosted 72 artists from 23 different countries, and takes place at Fabrik Potsdam, near the world-famous film town Babelsberg, less than an hour away from Berlin.
Q3A is powered by Keychange, an international campaign which is run by PRS Foundation and supported by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union and by the state capital Potsdam. Q3A is organised at Fabrik Potsdam, in partnership with Dutch music initiative Fluister, piano & coffee co., Traurig und Untanzbar, Klavins Piano Manufaktúra Kft., SOMA Laboratory, 30CC, Schh. and Brudenell Piano Sessions.
It also joins Piano Day, an annual worldwide event and platform for piano related projects founded by a group of likeminded people around pianist and composer Nils Frahm, that takes place on the 88th day of the year because of the number of keys on the instrument being celebrated.
