EFN Members' Spring Forward Meetings Online


Book your place now!


Because we couldn't meet up and had to postpone our second real-life annual 2-day conference that had originally been planned for November 2020 in Budapest, we are substituting it (until we are able to travel and meet again) with 3 half-day virtual meetings - the EFN Spring Forward series from March to June 2021 - now open for bookings.  

Participation in each Spring Forward meeting is FREE for all EFN Members who have paid an up to date membership subscription. (Participation is free for a maximum of three people from EFN Members which are organisations.  Each person should register separately.)  Non-members are also welcome - the suggested charge is €40 but there is also an option to pay what you can afford.

The Spring Forward #1 meeting will be on the afternoon of  Monday 15 March.  The programme - on the theme: EFN Today - Who We Are and Where We Are - will include discussion of the Stage One Mapping report and also EFN's first official Annual General Meeting (AGM).    Book your place HERE.   This booking will give you access to all three meetings.

Each Spring Forward meeting will concentrate on future plans and opportunities for EFN and its Members.   

Spring Forward #2 will be on Saturday 24 April and will focus on the theme:  EFN Tomorrow:  Who We Want To Be and Where We Want To Go.   Book your place HERE.   This booking will also give you access to meeting #3.

Spring Forward #3 - on Wednesday 9 June will focus on:  An EFN Manifesto and Three Year Strategic Plan.     Book your place just for meeting #3 only HERE

Make sure you don't miss these longed-for opportunities to connect up with members and friends once again, via the only pan-European network for the traditional arts.
