FROM IETM GALWAY
The IETM Galway Satellite meeting tackled one of the most urgent topics of our time: Climate Action. It explored relationships between artists, the arts ecosystem and the planet. Many of the resources collected during this Satellite remain useful for the IETM Aarhus Plenary Meeting 2023, and can be explored below.

Opening keynote speech IETM Porto ‘Other centres, paths, perspectives, practices’
Eduardo Viveiros de Castro, the Brazilian anthropologist, known for his attempt to decolonise thoughts, is the author of the opening keynote speech from IETM Porto, which was delivered in the format of a lecture performance by Fernanda Silva, founder of the activist Metaphor Teatro Galpão in Parnaíba, Brazil, and by Alvaro Domingues, Portuguese writer and geographer with a specific interest in the geography of social inequalities.
While Viveiros de Castro in his text “Os Involuntários da Pátria” denounces the condition of the Native Americans in Brazil—uprooted from their indigenous presence in the Americas, colonised by the Europeans, and excluded as full citizens—Domingues leads us to central questions of the Anthropocene: who are the “excluded” of today and what new or old worlds do they inhabit?
