IETM Brussels Plenary Meeting 2017
We live in an age of confusion. Some political circles nourish our suspicion against the “other”, some incite our aversion to the neoliberal status-quo. What is populism – ideology, movement or simply a style? How can we, in the art sector, counter populist hysteria and break down this black-and-white palette of political colouring?
Brussels, the city of diversity and contrasts, will host IETM’s Autumn Plenary Meeting (23 - 26 November 2017), gathering more than 600 arts professionals from all over the world to reflect 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.
The programme proposes a variety of sessions tackling art in the age of populism and other crucial topics affecting the sector. The sessions include keynote speeches, panel discussions, roundtable debates, interactive working groups, practical trainings, networking and mentor sessions.
IETM - International network for contemporary performing arts - is a network of over 500 performing arts organisations and individual members working in the contemporary performing arts worldwide: theatre, dance, circus, interdisciplinary live art forms, new media. Both members of IETM and non-member participants are welcome to attend the meeting. Registration is required.
Make sure to register 3 November at latest.
