Every year, our Platform Members host a local “Roadshow” event showcasing their activities in line with the FEDORA Platform’s vision and mission. The events are organised around predefined themes such as emerging artists, education projects or innovative artistic work.
The aim of the Roadshows is to involve and inform local audiences about the FEDORA Platform’s European vision and to help increase the awareness about the importance of private funding as a complementary revenue stream to public subsidies for Cultural Organizations.
These activities are co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union that is helping to make opera and ballet more accessible to new audiences and advocates new funding models.
