IETM Spring Plenary Meeting 2019

The IETM Spring Plenary Meeting in Hull (UK) begins on the eve of the very day that the UK leaves the European Union.
IETM Hull 2019 will explore the reality of inclusion in today’s societies, in their artistic representations and in the process of creation. The participants will examine issues around race, ethnicity, faith, disability, age, gender, sexuality, class and economic disadvantage and any social and institutional barriers that  prevent people from participating in and enjoying the arts as an integral part of the societies they live in.
