The European Commission supports the cultural and creative sectors in Europe. The European programme at the Embassy Festival has been made possible by the participation of The Representation of the European Commission in The Netherlands. Acts include Baroque roadtrip and Barbara Kozelj.
Where an Embassy would represent a country, The Representation of the European Commission in The Netherlands represents several international organisations. Their role is to act as a bridge between the Netherlands and the European Commission’s headquarters in Brussels. They fulfil this role by providing information on EU related topics to citizens, journalists and stakeholders in the Netherlands and by organising public events.
