Le Guess Who?'s borderless and boundary-crossing ethos led us to create COSMOS: a hybrid (online & offline) platform that promotes international collaboration with partners to give an insight into their local cultural scenes through audiovisual content.
COSMOS translates the festival’s mission - to platform underrepresented sounds & culture - to an online environment and promotes global connections. Beyond music, beyond film, beyond performances and beyond borders, COSMOS is a sanctuary for experimentation and inspiration.
With LGW Embassies, organizations and initiatives from around the world give an insight into their local cultural scenes through audiovisual content. The goal is to make this an ever-expanding platform to connect like-minded people, no matter where they are based. LGW Embassies are local experiences, powered and supported by COSMOS, in collaboration with global promoters.
During Le Guess Who? 2022, LGW Embassies were be broadcast from Slemani, Kurdistan-Iraq; Goa, India; Cairo, Egypt; Pernambuco, Brazil; Mexico City, Mexico; Khartoum, Sudan; China; and Palestine.
These embassies are the starting point for a broader network of connections around the world. Le Guess Who? is constantly looking for new partners to host embassies that amplify local scenes, local talent and local stories.
