In this fund, emerging artists are not defined in terms of age, but rather by their novelty to programmers and festival audiences, their potential to ‘break through’ internationally and to impact the artistic field in their discipline(s): a chance such artists did not have before.
By artists, we mean: individual artists or companies of any size and artistic genre.
All festivals working in one or more of the following artistic disciplines: Architecture, Ballet Contemporary Dance, Circus, Design/ Applied arts, Digital arts, Film, Folklore and folk arts, Heritage, Interdisciplinary, Literature, Music, Opera, Street Art, Theatre, Photography/ Video, Sculpture, Painting. The festivals exist for at least one edition and have their official address in one of the eligible countries. (See more details in the Call)
Leading festivals are free to collaborate with all art festivals even if they are not yet registered on FestivalFinder.eu. The festivals can register on FestivalFinder.eu before submitting their applications.
Each of the 2 partner festivals must be registered in a country other than the leading festival. Additional partner festivals (if more than 2) can be of any eligible country.
Being an EFA member is not a requirement to apply for EFFEA.
