Global Challenges, Cultural Visions
I am pleased to present you our 6 new contributors to the second edition of Eye-to-Eye: The Festival Quarterly. They all together and individually set so beautifully the tone of this e-magazine and more importantly of who and what informs us, and it, festival making, today: individual perspectives from persons living in Turkey, Serbia, Australia/UK, Singapore, Poland and Italy; eye-to-eye with artists, psychologists, film directors, city representatives; with men and women of the arts, younger and older, and one who will always stay with us: Frie Leysen. Frie was the founder and the director of deSingel in Antwerp and the internationally renowned Kunstenfestivaldesarts.
Let us hope that when the next edition of Eye-to-Eye comes out festivals will be able to look forward with renewed confidence.
