International Izmir Festival President
"Being a part of EFA, an open and influential international association with a global and regional approach with which we share core objectives such as artistic excellence and internationalisation, means having a reliable companion that tremendously increases our strength and capacity to fulfill our mission. We are very excited to join forces with this major network of arts festıvals and eager to add our voice."
"Festivals create a common platform in which the most valuable cultural treasures and traditions of mankind are discovered, experiences are shared. Artistic creativity is amongst the highest peaks a person can reach. Festivals feed this creativity, support it, and enable it to be shared by people and communities. The atmosphere of peace and love created by the festivals leads to the development of dynamic artistic creativity."
