In Autumn 2018, IETM Munich gathered 468 performing arts professionals from across the globe for lively discussions around the theme Res Publica Europa, with a special focus on diversity, participation and the future. A lot changed since then and 2020, the face of the world was literally transformed by COVID-19, and the need to look at these topics afresh brought us new insights, especially in light of the pandemic.
Two years later, in partnership with Meta Theater, we took the discussion back to Munich to assess the impacts generated by the Plenary, discuss current challenges faced by the German performing arts community and collectively look into the future. The day was devoted to discussing, networking and sharing ideas in an informal setting.
To ensure equal access to the event, the meeting was held in a hybrid format, meaning that online participants were able to take part digitally in all the working sessions held physically in the Pasinger Fabrik in Munich.
