IETM Global Connect is a programme launched and led by IETM - International network for contemporary performing arts and created with the support of IETM’s Associate Members. The goal of Global Connect is to make the network more inclusive, diverse and accessible.
The programme is open to performing arts professionals worldwide (producers, artists, managers, presenters, etc) who have at least 5 years of professional experience in the field and are committed to increase global awareness, inclusion, accessibility and connectivity – in the sector at large and in their communities.
Selected IETM Global Connectors will have the opportunity to enlarge their international connections, develop new skills and knowledge, actively share their perspectives with the network and bring new insights and learnings back to their communities.
In order to achieve this, they will receive an IETM membership for 5 years (from the beginning of 2023 till the end of 2027), with free access to all IETM meetings. Last but not least, they will receive funding support (amount tbc, expected between €800 - €2500) to take part in the 2023 IETM Plenary Meeting in Aarhus, Denmark and, as part of the plenary, in the yearly IETM Global Connectors Gathering.
