How it works?
Festivals are very welcome to our world organization and after paying the membership fees, we can start the announcing of the festival at our website-calendar. Paying members of IOV get more facilities for seeing all information about festivals and the contact-addresses.
In some cases we also try to assist our paying members in getting invitations to festivals.
Further we are available for organizers of festivals who wants to invite special groups for the festival program. In general we try to bring organizers of events and groups who have interest in a specific event together.
By publishing the festivals in our calendar, we hope to be able to promote intangible Cultural Heritage worldwide and to keep traditions alive.
International cooperation and participation in global events is important to bring people from different nations closer to each other. Well understanding the differences in culture and to know more about backgrounds of culture enriches life.
Friendship between people is an important way to a peaceful world.
Festivals are a meeting place for learning about cultural diversity and build up new friendships. If you want to be a member of our IOV-organization and to get the benefits of the membership, please feel free to contact us.
