TAKE A STAND is the awareness campaign for the festival, music and creative sector. It was launched by YOUROPE (The European festival association ) in 2017 as a platform for the festival and music industry to strengthen the awareness for the European values such as openness, cultural exchange, social cohesion, tolerance, humanism and peaceful dialogue. Today TAKE A STAND is supported by 140 festivals, associations and other partner from 25 countries. Those who feel connected to the European ideals, who believe in peace, integration and dialogue as opposed to fear and exclusion, are invited to join TAKE A STAND. The initiative is independent and entirely driven by the voluntary commitment of the participants.
