Today is the last day for eligible festivals to apply for the EFFE Label 2017-2018 and contribute to make the European Label for Festivals a success together.
The European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport - Mr. Tibor Navracsics supports festivals across Europe and reminds us:
“In supporting intercultural dialogue, the Commission relies on the ideas, networks and capacities of many partners. Bringing this diverse range of policies and projects to life would not be possible without the European Parliament, authorities and cultural institutes in the Member States as well as organisations like the European Festivals Association. We will need to continue to work together.”
EFFE Update, 17:08: Due to a large amount of applications today, our server is overloaded. To give all festivals still the chance to apply, we will keep the system open until 24 February. We do our best to respond as quick as possible to technical issues!
About the European Festivals Association (EFA)
The European Festivals Association (EFA) is the umbrella organisation for festivals across Europe and beyond representing about 100 festivals, national festival associations and cultural networks from 40 countries. More information on EFA and how to join the network, can be found here.
EFFE, the most comprehensive guide to Europe’s festivals, was initiated by the European Festivals Association to make sure everyone knows which festivals are doing the most exciting and innovative work and creating a coalition between festivals that share similar ambitions to get their audiences thinking about the world they live in. EFFE operates through funding of the European Union as a preparatory action.
