Tous 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 random and indiscriminate nature of air strikes in and around Sana’a made it difficult to pinpoint a completely safe area to hold the workshop." Filmmaker Sara Ishaq relates how a four-day art workshop helped give a degree of solace to Yemeni children made homeless by war.
I am not known for throwing around “the race card.” But every now and then, it’s thrown on me, especially in the arts. And, when I took a position in building new audiences, but only for the black plays, things really hit home. After this experience, I would like to help devise the best practices in new audience development, and suggest beginning with genuine community engagement. But it took working this job I describe below, to get me here. I was given a ten-week, remote position with a regional theatre company that was funded through a major foundation that seeks to provide models for new...
23-year-old Mohammad Faisal Abu Sakha has been held by the Israeli military without any contact with his family since late last year. He hasn’t been charged with a crime and the authorities refuse to give a reason for his detention.
Cultural matters are integral parts of the lives we lead. If development can be seen as enhancement of our living standards, then efforts geared to development can hardly ignore the world of culture.

What’s next in the fight against declining audiences and exclusivity in the arts? Clever pricing strategies are all well and good, but what we really need is market segmentation, argue Howard Buckley and Rosie Hanley.
While during the communist period, artists in Eastern Europe may have been restricted by ideology, today, it is the market that in fact constricts them, as they struggle to eke out an existence as creative labourers. While by no means free, performance and participatory art is perhaps attractive to artists seeking to address these issues because if they have to rely only on their own bodies, they usually find that they can.
"What does the deregulated, privatized economy possibly have to offer artists? For anyone who believes artistic representation preserves, or should preserve, an impulse for freedom and a degree of social dissent, the very possibility of a détente between artists and neoliberalism must be greeted with alarm.
"Institutions today are more opaque, more exclusive, and they share objectives intrinsically linked to corporate, neoliberal agendas (to the point that those agendas have become invisible). Cultural institutions are the administrative organs of the dominant order, and cultural producers actively contribute to the transmission of free market ideology across all aspects of our lives."
The Canada Council for the Arts is getting a new funding model in April of 2017. Funding will be tied to diversity - in the artistic and technical crew, administration, audience and boards...
