Introduction by the local hosts

The introduction by the local hosts is only available in French.

This local meeting in Montreal (Quebec, Canada) will be held both online and in person. All IETM members, as well as non-members, are invited to participate in the event free of charge. However, registration is compulsory. The Montreal programme will be organised around IETM's central theme "What matters now?".

In a world where human contact is difficult and international cooperation is undermined, reconnecting is essential, both locally and internationally. But how?

The illusion of hyper(de)connection, created by social networks and the abundance of information constantly flowing at our fingertips, makes conversation even more difficult and falsely allows us to keep in touch with each other.

It seems essential to renew the dialogue and find ourselves in the flesh (yes yes!). It seems urgent that the place of art and its craftspeople be rightly perceived as the driving force behind a revived human contact.

We therefore invite all interested participants to join our programme online and in person, to contribute to the discussion and reopen the dialogue.

So, what matters now?

We invite you to get together, exchange and reconnect, simply over a beer, a coffee or a walk.

Walk from Place des Festivals to the Kondiaronk Belvedere (NOW ONLINE)

Due to the ongoing pandemic, it will not be possible for all of us to meet in person, as hoped. Nevertheless, our team will still be walking and occupying the city, to make our voices heard. Live recordings of the performances and the speeches will be broadcasted live directly on this Facebook event.

The starting point will be the Place des Festivals, wishing to echo the call for mobilisation launched in the cultural milieu last June by Martin Faucher.

It will head towards the Kondiaronk Belvedere on Mount Royal.
