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
More than 100 international performing arts festivals from 43 countries invite you to explore their offerings and participate in their mission to build bridges of knowledge between the world and society, and bridges of mutual understanding between different individuals and communities, between different countries, regions and continents.
By changing the Statutes in 1997, EFA opened the way to develop into a representative umbrella-organisation of European festivals.
