    • Dear Talas Foundation
      Thank you for your comment.
      I am aware that we were first in communication in November 2013 but your organisation has not yet joined AITA/IATA asbl as an Associate. The Lingen Festival is an AITA/IATA asbl Children’s Festival and the festival’s joint committee will give preference to groups that are Associates or Members of AITA/AITA asbl.
      If do wish to consider becoming an Associate do get in touch with the Secretariat at
