Festival or Organisation description: 

BAFA is the UK Hub for the Europe for Festivals, Festivals for Europe (EFFE) project.

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 on the EFFE website here and sign up to hear about the next round of applications here. (Applications are open to all UK festivals, not just BAFA Members).

The EFFE is co-financed by the European Union.
