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 €10 but there is also an option to pay what you can afford.
The Spring Forward #1 meeting was held on the afternoon of Monday 15 March. The programme - on the theme: EFN Today - Who We Are and Where We Are - included discussion of the Stage One Mapping report and also EFN's first official Annual General Meeting (AGM). A report of the meeting will come out soon.
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.
Spring Forward #3 - on Wednesday 9 June will focus on: An EFN Manifesto and Three Year Strategic Plan. Book your place 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.
