EffectUs Event 2017 is approaching (23-24 September @ Lanificio 159) and for this reason we would like to remember the PRINCIPLES that animate the Cultural Association EffectUs and that all together we are making alive and active: sharing, exchange and artistic growth.

The realization of this event is possible thanks to the constant SUPPORT OF ALL THE MEMBERS it doesn’t matter if one is more or less active inside the community, every little action, including a facebook sharing, makes the difference in the EffectUs world.

As you know, the organization staff, in order to keep the event sustainable, works completely on a voluntary basis to make EffectUs Event happen. The Association must support the almost TOTALITY OF THE COSTS IN ADVANCE and because of that it is truly FUNDAMENTAL the punctuality of the RENEWAL or ACTIVATION of the MEMBERSHIPS and of the payments.

We ask everyone to anticipate the paperworks to facilitate the organization work.

We remind the status of current activities and the procedures for the ticket purchase:



As in the last year, to facilitate those who will hurry in pre-sales, tickets purchased at the door will be INCREASED OF € 2
