European Folk
NETWORK

 

People express and celebrate the rich diversity of cultural identities in Europe through folk and traditional music and associated performing arts.​ In order to do that they need to know it, know about it and have access to it. Therefore the European Folk Network exists to support the knowledge and practices and access to the arts of tradition currently practised in Europe in their diverse forms and origins.
 
​In order to do that the Network aims to create opportunities for artists, organisers and audiences from European countries to meet, communicate and collaborate​​.

​To advocate the importance of the arts of tradition in Europe.
