Co-ordinated by Naima Delaere (Belgium) , communication and network manager, European Festivals Association
The European Festivals Association is the network of festivals and one of the aims is to facilitate ways for festival programmers to meet and stick their heads together to discuss upcoming composers, the ‘hot’ new ensemble, new ways of commissioning works and more programming related topics.
Not only do we want to support young talent, but also enhance the visibility of contemporary creation on European festival stages and enforce its position within the arts.
EFA believes that collaboration, co-productions and co-touring are a generous and efficient way to make artists, venues, festivals and audiences better off. We will present the co-production projects that are already running among the EFA members and stimulate discussion with other festival programmers participating in Classical:NEXT.
