IETM launches its third international open call to participate in the 2024 edition of IETM Global Connect, a programme created with and supported by IETM Associate Members with the goal to make the IETM network more inclusive, diverse and accessible.

IETM is seeking applications from performing arts professionals worldwide (producers, artists, managers, presenters, etc.) who are working in all performing arts fields – except for live music – and who have at least five years of professional experience in the sector. Ideal candidates are leaders in their own local community and are committed to inclusion, accessibility and connectivity in the international sector at large and within their local communities.

The 10 selected candidates will receive a free IETM membership for five years (2024 – 2028) with several benefits, including free access to all IETM meetings; participate in four exclusive online sessions from January to May 2024 – including an opportunity to present your work to all IETM members – and get funding support to take part in the 2024 IETM Plenary Meeting in Sofia, Bulgaria from 12 to 15 June 2024.
