Durabilité

Comment gagner sa vie en étant artiste ?

Tout en continuant de nous battre pour sortir de la crise, nous devons nous donner la chance, non pas de survivre, mais de réussir.

Pour commencer, réévaluons nos stratégies professionnelles et les modèles correspondant à nos métiers. Comment utilisons-nous notre potentiel et nos ressources ? Que signifie le terme durabilité pour les arts, et comment l’atteindre ? Quel rôle les arts peuvent-ils jouer face à un problème de plus grande envergure : aider à sauver la planète, l’environnement dans lequel nous vivons et travaillons ?

How can we make it possible to extend the performing arts beyond their conventional live existence? How can we allow our performances to be seen and experienced by a broader public, not restricted by the place and time in which they were conceived and presented? How can we build the heritage and history of live arts? What are the various means of archiving our art form, and how does each of these affect the content and meaning of the piece, if at all?

This IETM Porto workshop tried to articulate the challenges that art professionals in different countries face when making and touring their work, with the aim of identifying key factors for creating greater equity and mutual understanding. The workshop also looked at the different ways art markets function across countries, different opportunities, constraints, regulations that come along, and the concept of an art market itself.

The Artistic creation outside the urban areas session at IETM Porto added new examples of artistic creation and community arts in the rural areas to those that were presented at IETM Brussels 2017, in the "Meanwhile in the Countryside" session. Thus it confirmed the outcome of the IETM Brussels 2017 session: the point is not to bring culture to the countryside, because it is already there; and that one undertaking artistic work in rural areas has to openly listen and interact with the local people, and be receptive to their stories, creating art together with them, not for them.

Clustering has been successfully used by industrialists for centuries as a strategy to generate economic growth. Made popular by influential Harvard academic Michael Porter in 1990, and originally described by economist Alfred Marshall in 1890, industrial clusters are concentrations of interrelated organisations, firms, professionals and practitioners collaborating and competing in related industries.
