Falconry: Exhibition and Celebration in the European Parliament

Falconers and fellow hunters from 19 countries gathered with EU decision-makers at the European Parliament in Brussels to launch a unique exhibition: the IAF (International Association of Falconry) and FACE joined with European Parliament’s Sustainable Hunting Intergroup President, Véronique Mathieu and MEP Bogdan Marcinkiewicz to host an internationally themed visual display at the very heart of Europe.

Building on the 2011 celebrations following falconry’s inscription to UNESCO as a Cultural Heritage of Humanity, the exhibition and activities surrounding the inaugural cocktail reception raised the profile of falconry in the EU – and of course, the profile of hunting as artistry.
