Blog from the Atelier: Dear festival directors, go crazy and dare

9 April 2014

Day 5 of the Atelier for Young Festival Managers (7 April 2014) started well with an interesting chat at breakfast with Inge [Project Manager of the Atelier] about social integration in Belgium. First item on our agenda today: visits of various cultural venues in Edinburgh. I was in a small group with nine other festival managers from Australia, Palestine, the UK, Greece, India, Malta and New Zealand guided by Emma from the Edinburgh International Festival (EIF) through the empty streets of Edinburgh heading towards the Edinburgh International Book Festival. Everybody was talking about how this city looks completely different in August. Read the full blog by Mohamed El Ghawy on Festival Bytes.
