International producing organisations: soon the end of the competition (?)


The production context for the performing arts is getting harder in the so called “permanent state of crisis” of the art sector. One can observe the multiplication of independent producing organisations on the international level, places where artists and producers join forces and share their knowledge. One may assume there is a better understanding of the nature of a producing organisation than a few years ago. Moreover, such organisations tend to gather, share knowledge and create coalitions on national and international levels. This session will bring together performing arts producers and their structures from different countries and give them a space to share examples of cooperation, good practices and explain their business models and structures. This session is conceived by three organisations from France, Hungary and Spain, willing to ask the audience: what are  our organisations like at reshaping and creating cooperation on local and international levels? Can solidarity and knowledge sharing be common values? How can independent companies and artists around the world empower each other through collaboration and exchange?

Hello dear participants!
We are so glad that you have registered for the session “International producing organisations: soon the end of the competition (?)”

In this state of permanent crisis the art sector is reacting in many ways and is asked to be more efficient: artists have to be innovative, festivals have to mix incomes and find private funding, public policies are reducing their budget for culture, etc. But what are the producers doing to participate in this common effort?


Starting from this point and discussing the topic with other producing organizations at various international networking times and meetings, we feel that there are a lot of formal and informal cooperation between independent producing organizations in Europe and overseas. Our working session aims at recognizing our peers (producers, production houses and offices, etc.) and exploring how we work and most of all: sharing experiences and feedbacks. Are you an independent structure, working with artistic teams independently within your local context and also internationally?  We would be so glad if you could join us for the working session in Munich to share and learn.

In preparation for the workshop we would like to ask you fill out this questionnaire so that we can devise a kick-ass and in-depth working session. If you find the topic interesting but cannot be there for the IETM meeting or have scheduled some other activity at this time, it would be great if you could fill out the questionnaire anyway. We hope that this session will be the starting point of a long term mapping and discussion of our practices. We are planning to give it an echo at the Hull meeting in March 2019.
