Call for applicants: Australian delegation in IETM Amsterdam

In 2009, The Australia Council developed a partnership with the International Network for Contemporary Performing Arts (IETM), the EU’s primary performing arts network, to develop long term collaborations and co-productions between Australian and European artists. This project has now evolved into a broader engagement with European networks and partners in European countries, supported by the International Development Manager, Europe. 

In May 2014, as a major outcome of the close collaboration with the IETM network, the Australia Council produced the IETM Asian Satellite Meeting at Arts Centre Melbourne. The meeting attracted over 240 delegates from Asia, Europe and Australia. Fifty of those delegates continued on to Sydney for the IETM Caravan, an additional industry program of meetings and showcases of Sydney independent artists and companies.

The Australia Council will lead an Australian delegation at the IETM Spring Plenary in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, 13-17 April 2016. For information on support to attend please see the call for Expressions of Interest (EOIs) here.
