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.
Ása Richardsdóttir will take over the position of IETM’s Secretary General from the 1st of February 2019.
Ása is currently the director of Ice Hot Reykjavík 2018, the biannual Nordic Dance Platform, project ambassador for the Nordic Culture Fund, and a long-standing member of IETM.
Nan van Houte will remain Secretary General until the 1st of March 2019, and the network will bid her farewell during the IETM Spring Plenary Meeting 2019.
