Satellite Melbourne & Caravan Sydney 2014

10 May 2014 to 16 May 2014
It was a great pleasure to welcome around 240 participants from 34 countries at the IETM Asia Satellite Meeting in Melbourne.
 
This time our challenge was in bringing together diverse and original cultural communities from three remote regions – Europe, Asia and Australia. It might seem that geographical distances create barriers to cultural cooperation. Nevertheless, our meeting showed that diversity promotes creativity, openness expands horizons, and sharing experiences enhances professional growth.
 
To explore the potential for intercontinental cultural cooperation, IETM and Australia Council for the Arts created an open environment of dynamic exchange, networking and collaboration, spontaneous ideas, relaxed talks and walks, open-mindedness and creativity. 
 
In the last days of our Australian journey we visited Sydney and got an insight to the local scene of the contemporary performing arts.
