All themes

"Themes" is a stream of content generated or created by both IETM staff and our members. In focus are the subjects we consider essential in the contemporary performing arts today: the relationship with the audience, EU cultural policies, diversity & inclusion, sustainability of the sector, the value of the arts in society, and the paradigms, challenges and aspirations faced by the sector in different parts of the globe.

Unlimited has teamed up with the British Council to provide travel bursaries to disabled artists and producers to attend the next IETM meeting. IETM is an international network for the performing arts, which our Project Manager Clara Giraud has been involved with for a few years. We’ve taken this opportunity to ask her what these ‘meetings’ are all about

Twelve years in but ahead of the curve – is the 2005 UNESCO Convention still the right tool for the promotion and protection of the diversity of cultural expressions? Has it ever been? What do the marginalised voices need to do in order to influence global debates and policy making and how do we tackle the many crises of our times?

The European institutions are currently evaluating the Creative Europe programme and collecting suggestions for the post-2020 programme for culture. As a response, IETM and European Dancehouse Network issued a position paper, fed with experiences and insights from members of both of our networks. The paper reflects our views on the current programme and contains recommendations regarding its post-2020 successor.

Data suggest that audiences do not “age into” greater concern about arts and culture. If organizations want people to care, they need to work to change people’s cause priorities.

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 ?

The cultural rights of Irish citizens should be recognised and protected through an Amendment to the Constitution, a report from the Oireachtas joint committee on arts and heritage has said.

Il y a cinquante ans, le général de Gaulle présidait à la création du ministère des affaires culturelles. La naissance de cette institution a précipité le déclin d’un autre projet, à présent méconnu : l’éducation politique des jeunes adultes, conçue dans l’immédiat après-guerre comme un outil d’émancipation humaine. Pour ses initiateurs, culture devait rimer avec égalité et universalité.

Growing up I did follow world events and I read an actual newspaper -- every day. Several key events stand out in my adolescent/teenage mind -- the 1989 Tiananmen Square Massacre, AIDS activists storming Saint Patrick’s Cathedral to interrupt a mass held by Cardinal John O’Connor, and the 1995 genocide in the Bosnian town of Srebrenica.
