À travers le monde

Alors que dans certains pays d’Europe les arts sont pris au piège des réalités du marché et opprimés par des exigences telles que le surplus économiques, la liberté créative est engloutie par les agendas politiques et étouffée par la présence des états dans les arts.

Libéralisme, liberté, financement public, ingérence étatique ; ces notions - que nous avons tous en tête de temps en temps - sont-elles perçues de la même façon dans des contextes historiques, économiques et sociaux différents ? Cette section nous donne un aperçu des divers paradigmes, défis et aspirations qui prévalent aux quatre coins du monde.

Through the analysis of the CDCE’s transfer from international level to Mercosur and ASEAN regions, my article seeks to explore four key questions : why do actors engage in norm transfer ? Who are the key actors involved in the norm transfer process ? What is transferred and why ? What restricts or facilitates the norm transfer process ?

Metrics-based approaches to understanding the value of culture imply homogeneity of artistic purpose, invite political manipulation and demand time, money and attention from cultural organisations without proven benefit.

The mapping of the Cultural and Creative industry in Greece has been a top priority for the Ministry of Culture and Sports during 2006. The lack of a suitable tool, which would support strategy and decision-making aimed at planning support actions for the professionals of the Contemporary Culture and Creative Economy, has led to the need of recording their growth dimension, in accordance with international practices.

Thanks to the support of the Arts Council, in 2016 #WakingTheFeminists commissioned groundbreaking research into the gender balance in ten of the top publicly funded theatre organisations over a ten-year period from 2006-2015, as a way to create a baseline from which these changes can be measured. This report is the piece of the puzzle that was missing, the research that never existed. And you will find that it is stark.

We must avoid trafficking in clichés and “received knowledge” about Muslims—or any other marginalized group—because to do so instrumentalizes stereotype. The question is not who gets to speak for certain groups (since that critique has long been used to silence disempowered communities), but rather to propose strategy to improve opportunity equity and awareness.

The level of suppression against art in Turkey can only be grasped by going deep into details and history. Sacking of 4,464 public servants including 330 academics sounds alarming, but knowing it also meant the practical closing down of the most important theatre institution of the country is shocking. The arson of a theatre and a cultural centre is scary, but knowing its symbolic significance reminding of the mass murder of intellectuals and artists in 1993 is infuriating.

IETM recently hosted its Plenary Meeting in Bucharest, Romania, with a particular focus on the current position of the artist in contemporary societies, as well as on the financial and social conditions of pursuing a career in the arts. This series of articles reveals what is to be an artist in today's Romania. From the perspective of the self-proclaimed (and later, experience-proclaimed) cultural manager, there is a small detail about my field of work that has constantly made me wonder about our status: the fact that our backgrounds and the paths that brought most of us here are suspiciously...
