About Us

Festivals In Fife is an initiative of Fife Council, funded by Creative Scotland.  It's purpose is to assist Fife's festivals of strategic importance to develop collectively and grow their capacity for development in order to maximise opportunities.

 

Our vision: To advance Fife's position locally, nationally and internationally as a world class festival destination and be recognised as a collective of quality festivals offering excellent experiences for locals and visitors alike.

 

To achieve this vision the collective will take forward four clear priorities of:

 

Promotion

Achieving the vision by awareness raising, marketing and promotion of the festivals to people living in Fife, the rest of Scotland, the UK and internationally resulting in directly increasing visits and revenue across the festivals.

 

Advocacy

Achieving the vision by highlighting the importance of, and fostering support for, cultural festivals taking place in Fife from politicians, public bodies, funders, business and others encouraging commitment, flexibility and improving festivals resilience.

 

Collaboration

Achieving the vision by sharing expertise and festival development knowledge with each other and to smaller community based festivals and fledgling festivals to improve the opportunities, delivery and successes of all festivals.

 

Research

Achieving the vision by undertaking clear, concise research regarding the tourism, social and economic impact of our festivals to inform future planning at local and national level.

 

Festivals In Fife is a membership organisation of nine cultural festivals currently operating under membership criteria and a working agreement supported by the Festivals Development Officer. To contact Festivals In Fife please use the form on the Contact Us page.
