IETM Copenhagen Plenary Meeting 2012

28 March 2012 to 31 March 2012


The 2012 IETM Spring Plenary Meeting (28 to 31 March) welcomed more than 700 participants under the bright sky of Copenhagen to focus on the concept of "Right". The attendance number was the highest in IETM’s 30 year history!

The theme of the meeting was "Right?" which was a starting point for a discussion within the performing arts community, following the debate started in IETM Krakow 2011. By exercising our (artistic, cultural, human) rights and guaranteeing those of our public, could we/should we engage ourselves more in the day-to-day challenge of structuring and maintaining the societies in which we live and work? Do civic and artistic responsibilities mix well? The participants were looking for answers to these questions during the rich programme of the meeting while getting to know the Danish performing arts scene during the artistic programme.

The meeting in Copenhagen and the artistic programme were supported by The Danish Arts Council Committee for Performing Arts, The Capital Region of Denmark and The Bikuben Foundation.
