From twenty different countries on three continents, thirty-three motivated young participants with widely diverse cultural and professional backgrounds - from students in arts management to young managers working for large established organizations to beginning curators running their own innovative international festivals - came together for a concentrated and rigorous one-week program of workshops, lectures, and cultural events.

"This Atelier brought me much more than expected in term of network, knowledge about festival management, inspiration, reflection and self confidence. I really hope that EFA will continue this workshop every year for other young festival managers to take advantage of this wonderful offer!"
