Europe’s quality stamp for remarkable arts festivals
An international jury has granted Oranjewoud Festival the prestigious EFFE Label 2019-2020, Europe’s quality stamp for remarkable arts festivals. According to the jury the festival deserves to carry the label because it showed engagement in the field of the arts, community involvement and international openness.
According to Kathrin Deventer, Secretary General of the European Festivals Association, "festivals function in a complex creative environment, stimulating synergy and building bridges on many levels - from the artistic to the political. The artistic, organisational and financial model of a festival, its cross-disciplinary and cross-sectorial set-up, allows direct investment into the artistic process that enriches Europe’s citizens."
The EFFE International Jury, EFFE Hubs and European Festivals Association wish Oranjewoud Festival a spectacular 2019 edition.
