The European Festivals Association (EFA) is happy to announce that the EFFEA call is open!

EFFEA – the European Festivals Fund for Emerging Artists – is a project that offers emerging artists a platform to develop their careers on an international level through festivals.

We invite all interested festivals based in one of the eligible countries to partner with at least two other festivals in different countries to support an emerging artist.

This first EFFEA call will support 50 festivals and their emerging artists for an artistic residency programme between 1 February and 31 December 2023. Apply for an EFFEA grant before 15 November 2022 on the EFFEA platform.

EFA also held an info session to go into detail through the call. You can watch the recording of the session and go through the PowerPoint that was presented. Collected questions are all part of the Frequently Asked Questions page on the EFFEA Platform.

Good luck!
