24 to 27 October ietm members meet in Rijeka, Croatia. Community art or participatory art? “High art” or grassroots culture? IETM will deepen the understanding of participation in the arts and the demand for audience development in a variety of ways and not solely in funders’ jargon. The opening keynote speech and some talks will be livestreamed.
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.
This mapping offers an in-depth overview of the performing arts scene in Germany – its historical foundations which still dominate today’s structure, the key players in the contemporary field, the relevant festivals and venues, and more.
Art in the age of populism: Brussels hosted a four-day reflection on how art can help to overcome the “us against them” discourse, put together the pieces of fragmented societies and shape a truly different future.
A meeting review is published here.
