IETM Aarhus Plenary Meeting 2023

Living on the Edge

Monday 12 June and Wednesday 14 June 2023

IETM, in collaboration with Performing Arts Platform Denmark, presented the IETM Aarhus Plenary Meeting 2023 livestreamed on the global, commons-based, peer-produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv on Monday 12 June and Wednesday 14 June 2023.

The IETM Aarhus Plenary Meeting 2023 invited its participants to discuss and digest the ethical and practical role of the performing arts—and of the artist—in the face of climate emergency. It presented a program that aims to provoke new thoughts and inspire action, awareness, and positive impact.

In this frame, IETM and Performing Arts Platform Denmark invited the performing arts sector at large to tune in to the livestream of our two keynotes: “Living on the Edge—A Nature Divide?” on Monday 12 June and “Climate Justice” on Wednesday 14 June.
