Fair Enough? - Report from the IETM Focus Meeting Brussels 7-8 April 2022
In April 2022, IETM gathered its members in Brussels for our new format Focus meeting, titled Fair Enough? It was a space to explore, critique and improve our work practices and conditions. Are they fair and human enough? What does “fair’’ mean in your specific professional context? Which practices and conditions can you and your organisation change, and what is beyond your power?
These questions and more were explored in three participatory working sessions held over two days at the Brussels meeting. IETM, together with independent evaluator Vassilka Shishkova, has compiled an in-depth report to showcase the intentions and outcomes of the meeting, which mapped the urgencies, recommendations and good practices in the performing arts sector. With contributions from 173 participants, the IETM Focus Brussels report is a collection of challenges we still face as a sector and ideas on how we can advance the fair and green transition of the performing arts and rethink our international existence, in small and large steps.
