What is EFFE?
EFFE aims to be a portal for professionals and citizens to discover arts festivals in Europe.
EFFE’s overall aims are to increase access to Europe’s diverse festivals by providing key information on Europe’s arts and cultural festivals, and to enrich the festival landscape and European society by promoting trends in artistic excellence and innovation in festival production.

Why did you apply?
The European Union continues to support festivals in all EU Member States. Investing into festivals, and thus into artists and audiences alike, is crucial in our cultural policy vision. EFA’s strong proposal was chosen because EFFE will increase citizens’ access to the arts and culture, allow artists to reach out to audiences all over Europe, and promote cultural diversity. I am glad to work with EFA on this first European Platform, a new strand in the European Commission’s new Creative Europe programme in place for 2014-2020.
