globalFEST's mission is cultural, social and political. It aims to bring down boundaries between countries and create cultural opportunities for individual artists and for governments, sponsors, scholars and critics to collaborate. Tours and cultural exchanges that result from globalFEST's showcases have helped to build an ever widening audience for world music and, by extension an increase in international cooperation and collaboration.
