EFFE Festival Label 2015-2016
Europe for Festivals, Festivals for Europe - EFFE is a gateway into Europe's festivals specialised in anything cultural. It intends to broaden awareness of what is going on in the festival world, and to promote excellence and innovation. Are you deeply committed to the arts? Do you interact with your local community? Do you feel that you are a European and a global actor? Do you want international recognition for what you are doing and would you like your peers and public to be better informed? The first of EFFE's initiatives is a quality label. A label is more than a stamp of recognition for good work. It also means inclusion in a widely distributed festival guide, full of the latest news and practical information. It means increased visibility and audiences and fresh networking possibilities. This label is presented to festivals with an artistic commitment, involvement in their local communities and a European and global outlook. All festivals in European Union countries are eligible.
The online application form must be submitted by 15 November 2014. Every EU Member State has a Festival Hub that acts as a contact point for artists, festivals, businesses and policy-makers, where all details can be obtained. Experts chosen by the hubs will assess their country's applications and see if they meet the three criteria of commitment to the arts, to local communities, and to the European and global stages.
All information on the label and how to apply can be found on EFFE's website: www.effe.eu
