Quote of the Week
“A festival is a unique occasion for meeting different people and different cultures. Together with artists who are real masters of communication through art, a festival is a strong builder of bridges between different cultures - and even between civilizations."
Ján Figel’, former European Commissioner for Education, Training, Culture, and Youth
EFA BOOKS Series to be extended by two volumes
Gent, Thursday, 06-01-2011
The EFA BOOKS Series puts in the spotlight the role of the arts, culture and festivals in the society of today and highlights contemporary challenges. It contributes to and stimulates further discussion on cultural issues and it involves festivals in the international debate with politicians and cultural operators. In 2011, two editions are envisioned to be published: one on issues related to a cultural Europe and one featuring experiences of 9 women who look back on their festival careers.
Previous editions include:
• Dialogue. Festivals Act for an Intercultural Society (2009)
• Cahier de l’Atelier. Arts festivals for the sake of art? (2008)
• Give, Get or Get off! Challenges of cultural networking today (2008)
• Still so much to be done. Challenges for Culture in Europe (2006)
All editions of the EFA BOOKS Series can be purchased on the EFA eShop at www.efa-aef.eu.
