The project objectives:

1. community

Implementation of a community development strategy, in order to improve and empower the identity of the festival.

2. Training

Training of the personnel, specially of the coordinators, the people who work actively in the festival coordination,  but often volunteering and without proper professional training.

3. Mobility

Mobility and circulation of organisers and sub-coordinators in order to learn how other festivals face common problems.

4. sustainability

Improve the economical sustainability of the events, by distributing the activities throughout the year and diversifying the incomes.

5. environment

Improve the ecological sustainability of the events, by reducing their impact on the local environment, minimise the  use of resources and production of waste and by strengthening the local audience presence.

6. accessibility

Improve the accessibility to the festivals, by establishing the local and international networks in order to develop the  necessary infrastructure.

7. transnationalism

Improve the transnational cooperation, establishing connections with other festivals out of the local borders and  promoting the business model.
