In this online session, we will come together to explore the renewed space of encounter and think about the actions, ideas and changes needed for “tomorrow”.

Remembering the transformative experience of the past year, the workshop will trigger self-reflection and an individual/collective projection into the future. Exploring concepts and perspectives about loss, gain, intimacy, distance, sense and feeling of community, time & space, the participants will reflect on how the pandemic experience has shaped and is shaping (my/our) today and (my/our) tomorrow.

In the world we are living, imagining the future is not just a speculative exercise, but a concrete process to provoke and inspire change in our immediate reality.

In this session, different working groups will come together to explore the renewed space of encounter and think about the actions, ideas and changes needed for “tomorrow”.

Remembering the transformative experience of the past year, the workshop will trigger self-reflection and an individual/collective projection into the future. Exploring concepts and perspectives about lost, gain, intimacy, distance, sense and feeling of community, time & space, the participants will reflect on how the pandemic experience has shaped and is shaping (my/our) today and (my/our) tomorrow.

In the world we are living, imagining the future is not just a speculative exercise, but a concrete process to provoke and inspire change in our immediate reality.

Within this framework, delegates will be divided into working groups each focused on one of three thematic threads (see descriptions below). Please pre-register for the group of your choice before the meeting.

Thematic threads

1. New funding schemes and cultural policies

“The ultimate, hidden truth of the world is that it is something that we make, and could just as easily make differently.” ― David Graeber, The Utopia of Rules: On Technology, Stupidity, and the Secret Joys of Bureaucracy

What if we crossed… Cultural policy with choreography? Grant writing with theatre? Evaluation with storytelling? Funding with improvisation? Governance with circus? Bureaucracy with poetry? 

As a network, we have imagination, passion, and each other. We are rich from the diversity of our contexts. This strand is about emergence, dialogue and artistic intelligence.

2. Alternative models for the international

We have heard and probably repeated ourselves that our ways of working internationally are changing or absolutely need to change. 

But if so, will the international remain important and necessary for our professional roles in the future? What changes are we making in order to adapt to a new international framework ? How can we create a new international way of working, starting from the fundamental needs of human fulfilment and wellbeing and which impact will it have on what we call the international?

In this strand, we will try to find immediate ways through which we can experiment with alternative international practices without losing sight of why we do it.

3. Opportunities for artistic innovation

In a workshop format we will hear each other's ideas and good practices of how innovation can be integrated in our everyday work routines. 

While us artists and arts managers around the globe search for innovative solutions, routes in our artistic work do we also do the same in the supporting practices? Do we really allow for change and for new ideas? How can we break from patterns in our collaborations, ways of work that counteract innovation? And what may be those small or big individual steps that we can make to trigger real change?

Within this framework, we sought to enable a space for you to discover emerging or in-development cultural or artistic projects that are innovative and convey the idea of transformation.

In this first project presentation session out of two, 5 presenters selected upon a call for applications will have the opportunity to present their projects to both on-site and online participants

A fast-paced session where 5 innovators and creators of the performing arts worldwide will share their newest projects in 5 minutes and where the audience can participate with equally fast questions. 60 minutes of pure enjoyment.

Within this framework, we sought to enable a space for you to discover emerging or in-development cultural or artistic projects that are innovative and convey the idea of transformation.

In this second project presentation session out of two, 5 presenters selected upon a call for applications will have the opportunity to present their projects to both on-site and online participants.

A fast-paced session where 5 innovators and creators of the performing arts worldwide will share their newest projects in 5 minutes and where the audience can participate with equally fast questions. 60 minutes of pure enjoyment.

Breakout Groups 2

Centre Cultural La Mercè

Centre Cultural La Mercè

Address: Pujada de la Mercè, 17004 Girona | Event Map | Venue Accessibility

In this session, different working groups will come together to explore the renewed space of encounter and think about the actions, ideas and changes needed for “tomorrow”.

Remembering the transformative experience of the past year, the workshop will trigger self-reflection and an individual/collective projection into the future. Exploring concepts and perspectives about lost, gain, intimacy, distance, sense and feeling of community, time & space, the participants will reflect on how the pandemic experience has shaped and is shaping (my/our) today and (my/our) tomorrow.

In the world we are living, imagining the future is not just a speculative exercise, but a concrete process to provoke and inspire change in our immediate reality.

Within this framework, delegates will be divided into working groups each focused on one of three thematic threads (see descriptions below). Please pre-register for the group of your choice before the meeting.

Anikó Racz, , Hungary
Fanny Martin, Art of Festivals, Canada

Thematic threads

1. New funding schemes and cultural policies

“The ultimate, hidden truth of the world is that it is something that we make, and could just as easily make differently.” ― David Graeber, The Utopia of Rules: On Technology, Stupidity, and the Secret Joys of Bureaucracy

What if we crossed… Cultural policy with choreography? Grant writing with theatre? Evaluation with storytelling? Funding with improvisation? Governance with circus? Bureaucracy with poetry? 

As a network, we have imagination, passion, and each other. We are rich from the diversity of our contexts. This strand is about emergence, dialogue and artistic intelligence.

2. Alternative models for the international

We have heard and probably repeated ourselves that our ways of working internationally are changing or absolutely need to change. 

But if so, will the international remain important and necessary for our professional roles in the future? What changes are we making in order to adapt to a new international framework ? How can we create a new international way of working, starting from the fundamental needs of human fulfilment and wellbeing and which impact will it have on what we call the international?

In this strand, we will try to find immediate ways through which we can experiment with alternative international practices without losing sight of why we do it.

3. Opportunities for artistic innovation

In a workshop format we will hear each other's ideas and good practices of how innovation can be integrated in our everyday work routines. 

While us artists and arts managers around the globe search for innovative solutions, routes in our artistic work do we also do the same in the supporting practices? Do we really allow for change and for new ideas? How can we break from patterns in our collaborations, ways of work that counteract innovation? And what may be those small or big individual steps that we can make to trigger real change?

In the debate on working conditions of artists and arts professionals, funding schemes and programmes are key elements in the great puzzle. 
Starting from the post-pandemic urgency to reassess and rethink funding strategies and programmes, this session will discuss the findings of the upcoming IETM Publication on fair, flexible and inclusive funding for the arts sector.  
The discussion will provide some food for thought, concrete examples and recommendations for funding structures to consider their own transition as key players in supporting and shaping sustainable arts ecosystems.

Celrà

Celrà

Meeting point: Parking La Copa, 2 Carrer de Berenguer Carnicer, 17001 Girona

On the occasion of this optional post-meeting trip, we propose to visit L'Animal a l'Esquena, a center for contemporary performing arts creation. This center uses the stones and spaces of an old 17th century farmhouse to offer work and residence spaces for artists and creators.

During the visit you will be able to get to know the project as well as some of the creators linked to it at the same time that you can enjoy an aperitif in the middle of nature.

Participation is free and includes transportation and an aperitif.
