IETM Sofia Plenary Meeting 2014

16 October 2014 to 19 October 2014

IETM Plenary Meeting in Sofia has been a diverse and enriching ground for reflecting on the role and future of the contemporary arts sector in the world in transition. We have discussed how the independent arts sector can deal with the digital shift, international economic inequality, and the necessity to convince funders and society of the value of the arts by measuring their impact. 

Sharing the local urge for new strategies, we have visited the potential future arts spaces in Sofia. This fascinating tour nourished our debates about developing and sustaining interdisciplinary cultural venues and highlighted one of the vital issues facing the Bulgarian independent arts sector. 

Now is the moment to reflect on the results of our discussions, generate fresh ideas and continue the open debates.
