IETM Multi-location in Sydney

Introduction by the local host

Are you a performing arts worker or student interested in how Australian performance will continue to connect to other parts of the world?

You are invited to join a Sydney meeting connecting to the IETM international performing arts gathering ! Share your passion for the Australian Performing Arts live with people you may not know, hear provocations and pitches from international performance makers and connect to the global IETM meetings across 25 locations.

Many Australians have engaged with IETM in the past, and the Australia Council for the Arts have supported delegations to attend since 2009. I, Pippa Bailey, am a longstanding member and have been on the Advisory Group since 2016, keen to share insights and connections.
