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.

The Middle East Institute co-hosted a panel discussion exploring the value and impact of the arts in conflict zones. The panel was organized with the Media Lounge at the College Art Association's annual meeting in Washington, D.C.

Mochten we dat discours nu eens hard maken met een fair practice-label voor duurzame cultuurorganisaties, op basis van hun eerlijke arbeidsvoorwaarden voor losse kunstenaars?

He had gone “from being an artist who makes things, to being an artist who makes things happen.” Is political art becoming a restrictive term?
There is growing international interest in the potential of the cultural and creative industries to drive sustainable development and create inclusive job opportunities. An indication of this is a recent set of UNESCO guidelines on how to measure and compile statistics about the economic contribution of the cultural industries.
