BAFA is the UK Hub for the second edition of the Europe for Festivals, Festivals for Europe (EFFE) project - and your festival is invited to apply.

With Brexit upon us, BAFA believes there has never been a more important time to strengthen our European links, and this project is designed to do just that.

The EFFE was initiated by the European Festivals Association in 2015 to showcase those festivals across Europe which are doing the most exciting and innovative work. With the ambition to produce a comprehensive and the gold standard guide for festival and cultural tourism across Europe, additionally the EFFE aims to create a European wide coalition between festivals that share similar ambitions.

Find out more about the project by downloading the pdf here and how to apply on the EFFE website here.

The EFFE is co-financed by the European Union.
