From the very beginning, one of the main meanings of ARFA's existence was to promote professional, artistic creation in different domains, such as composition, musicology, choreography, musical interpretation, visual arts, art critics etc. Thus, ARFA's singularity derives from both its main purpose - to draw genuine public recognition for creating personalities in Romania - and to coordinate trans-disciplinary and multi-artistic events.
During the year 2005 and the beginning of 2006, ARFA has continued its main permanent projects: The FORUM-ART Season and the performances of its contemporary Music and Dance Group INTERR-ART. 
FORUM - ART - a unique project released by ARFA involving music, dance, poetry, theatre or visual arts - has been realized in 2005 in cooperation with The Romanian Composers and Musicologists Union, ISCM - Romanian Section, the Romanian Musical Post, Romanian Broadcasting Society, Odeon Theater, National University of Bucharest, Musica Academy of Cluj, SENZO Television, or different Reviews (Top Business Review, Actualitatea Muzicala, Muzica Review etc). FORUM - ART 2005-2006 consisted of a series of 8 performances, featuring well-known Romanian ensembles - Pro-Contemporania, Inter-Art, Duo Manoleanu, Percussion Group of Music Academy of Cluj, together with their special guests choreographers, visual artists, dancers or actors. Over 50 works, belonging to Romanian and foreign Composers were presented during Forum-Art Season 2005-2006. 

The specific group of ARFA called - INTER - ART achieved a great popularity in the last 14 months in Romania and internationally. 
The February 2005, INTER- ART released its first unique DVD in Romania, produced by ARFA with the support of Ministry of Culture, featuring moments from its different performances and tours. The release of the DVD was followed by an extraordinary performance of INTER- ART, at the Odeon Theater of Bucharest. 
INTER-ART has toured in the last 14 months in the following countries: Israel, Italy, Japan, USA and Pakistan, achieving projects in collaboration with foreign artists (soloists, composers, choreographer or visual artists). INTER_ART was invited to perform as well in the main festivals in Romania such as International New Music Week (Mai 2005), Multi Sonic Fest (September 2005), The Old Music Festival (July 2006).

ARFA has continued the support of Contemporary Arts Productions, being involved in 2005 in mixed productions - concerts / exhibitions - with the main stages in Bucharest as Romanian National Opera, Nottara Theater, Arcub Hall, Romanian Radio Hall.
The end of September 2005, ARFA organized the second edition of its own festival Multi Sonic Fest, a first initiative of this kind in Romania. This festival has included 6 performances of Fusion-Music, filing the gape between contemporary music and jazz, combining traditional Asian and African instruments with electric sound sources, melting classic contemporary musical textures with world music grooves and improvising experiments of music and dance, focalizing the interaction between Romanian and foreign performers.
