Amsterdam Ferry Festival (AFF) has created a ‘League of Extraordinary Gentle (wo)men’. This is an advisory committee consisting of festival ambassadors with diverse professional backgrounds, who assist the AFF team in various areas. They think along, provide feedback, advise and contribute ideas for the artists and art forms, programming and / or business contacts.
