2022, First Edition of the International ArtsGames. Look out for details.


The International ArtsGames Percussion Federation (IAPF) is set up by the International ArtsGames Committee (IAC) to bring about a conglomeration of various percussive instruments and their players from across the cultural clusters of the world to participate in the International ArtsGames. Headquartered in Lagos, Nigeria, the Federation is working with ten Regional Agencies across the world to select drummers through an online audition for participation at the live-audition which will culminate in the biennial global ArtsGames. The IPF is headed by an Executive Director.
