Festivals and villages/towns are Siamese twins. They serve citizens, audiences and visitors. There is a great potential to unlock on a local level through more collaborations between them. 

In order to create and sharpen arts festivals' needs of connections, we have set up a questionnaire to collect information from the festivals’ point of view to guide our actions towards local and regional authorities and this on different areas: cultural life, tourism, local economy, ecology and so on, in order to explore new opportunities for collaboration.


What are the links and relations you have - as festivals - with your village, town and region? Are you receiving support from your towns and cities? What are their expectations towards festivals? 

This questionnaire should take approximately 12-14 minutes to answer.

We count on you to fill in the questionnaire before 21 February 2021 and to spread it around you. The more answers we collect, the more accurate our response towards local and regional authorities will be.

The results of the questionnaire will be published in March and will feed into the work of the Festival Cities Initiative, a working group lead by EFA and A Soul for Europe organising activities such as the Festival Cities Workshops and the Festival Cities Conversations.


This questionnaire is carried out in the framework of the project (a)Live Now co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
