We are incredibly proud to announce that Next Wave, alongside the Australia Council and Arts Centre Melbourne, will be playing host to the first ever International Network for Contemporary Performing Arts (IETM) conference in Melbourne next year.
IETM is the largest and oldest European network for the performing arts with more than 500 members from 50 countries, including the United Kingdom, Canada, Japan and Australia. It aims to stimulate the quality, development and contexts of contemporary performing arts in a global environment.
Coinciding with our 2014 Festival, the conference will bring together key players in the Asian, European and Australian performing arts sector to share expertise, build partnerships and create strong networks, as well as facilitate the development of future projects. Delegates will participate in a special weekend of events programmed by Next Wave, featuring two days of intense activity across our 2014 program.
This is a fantastic opportunity for our artists to present their work in an international context and engage with the global performing arts community. We look forward to welcoming IETM to Melbourne!
