An exciting new half day event organised with BAFA's new University members. This event addressed issues of festival and education sector collaboration and provided interesting insights into the festival industry.
BAFA University Membership
When a University department or faculty becomes a member of BAFA the membership is extended to everyone in that faculty or school – all of the staff, current students and recent graduates. Being part of the BAFA membership is a great way to form concrete links with future employers in the festival and events sector, increase knowledge and awareness of the sector and facilitate the sharing of information and work experience opportunities for students and professional development for staff.
