Thèmes

Les « thèmes » sont un flux de ressources générées ou créés par le personnel de l’IETM et par nos membres. Les sujets mis en avant nous semblent actuellement essentiels pour le secteur des arts du spectacle : la relation avec le public, les politiques culturelles de l'UE, la diversité et l’intégration, la durabilité du secteur, la valeur des arts dans la société, et les divers paradigmes, défis et aspirations qui sont vécus aux quatre coins du monde.

In the middle part of the last century, the nation’s big advertising firms started hiring behavioral experts with Ph.D.s in psychology under the assumption that advertising might be more effective if the firms knew something about what made consumers tick. While they may have been looking for concrete answers, what they found instead was that buyer behavior changes as fast as the tides.

Today, the analysis of global transformation rarely stresses the cultural dimension. It is rather focused on technology (digital networks, artificial intelligence, genetic manipulation, the Internet of Things for instance), climate change, population growth or economic sustainability. This shows a tendency to attribute historical development mainly to economic, technological, business and demographic factors – as if ideas, creations, institutions and culture played little role in major global change.

Burnout is all too often accepted as a necessary evil of working in the arts. As something we all HAVE to endure. Essentially, I’m on a bit of a mission to try and interrupt the work-all-the-time mentality that seems to pervade a lot of what we do in the arts.

How do you lead a cultural institution, in a context in which populist politicians have acquired a powerful position? During the last 15 years, quite some European performing arts professionals have gained experience in this. Their stories were shared during the IETM Brussels Plenary Meeting on November 25th in La Raffinerie in Sint-Jans-Molenbeek.

The Global Report series has been designed to monitor the implementation of the UNESCO Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions (2005). It provides evidence of how this implementation process contributes to attaining the United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Goals and targets.

History can be a contentious subject, especially when it comes to determining how and what we remember. That’s especially true in Argentina, which is still trying to come to terms with the legacy of its period of military rule in the 1970s and 80s, which resulted in the deaths of tens of thousands of citizens.

I’ve recently come through a number of “minority artist development programs” at a variety of major (read: primarily white and able-bodied) theatre venues and cultural institutions, and have found them to be consistently wanting in a few ways.
