EuroStrings is the first platform of European guitar festivals, led by Zagreb Guitar Festival and ever expanding with an initial 14 members’ festivals in 2018 and reaching 17 members’ festivals in 2020. The project is co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union and is the first guitar project ever to receive such funding.
EuroStrings also has partners in the USA and China, making it a truly global project. Each member festival also stages an international guitar competition.
EuroStrings activities include audience development, the creation of new business models, research and development of resources for festival organisers and policy makers but the most important element is the development of emerging young guitarists.
