It is with great pleasure that we announce that the Victoria International Arts Festival now forms part of the prestigious EFFE (Europe for Festivals, Festivals for Europe) label. The following is the result of our application:
“The Coordinating Body of EFFE – Europe for Festivals, Festivals for Europe, is delighted to inform you that the Victoria International Arts Festival has been selected to receive the EFFE Label 2015/2016. Your application was approved by our International Festival Jury following successful evaluation by the Hub Experts on a national level.
Victoria International Arts Festival is now part of the EFFE Platform, initiated by the European Festivals Association, which consists of festivals that stand for artistic quality and have a significant impact on the local, national and international level. The Label recipients represent 31 European countries and offer a wide range of genres and activities to their audiences. Through developing community and creativity within Europe, you and all your colleague festivals make Europe a better place.
Your festival will now be included in the EFFE Festival Guide, which means that your festivals’ information is easily and better accessible to festival audiences, artists, artistic organisations, ensembles, orchestras, theatre and dance companies, public authorities at all levels, sponsors and private companies, and the media.”
