The BRaVE Fair aims to bring together innovative projects in the field of arts and sports-based interventions, to respond to political frustration throughout Europe, particularly of youth, and support the development of interfaith dialogue and community resilience. The BRaVE Fair represents the flagship event of the BRaVE project and offers an opportunity to support and showcase new grassroots anti-extremism projects.
