Global Connect | NICRC

IETM Global Connect is a new programme launched and led by IETM – an international network for contemporary performing arts.

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. 

Niamh Flanagan, Director of Theatre & Dance NI, said: 

“This is a fantastic opportunity for someone to connect and engage with this important network and benefit from this supported engagement. In the last few years, several artists from Northern Ireland have been supported by Belfast City Council and Theatre and Dance NI to attend IETM plenaries and have experienced first-hand the importance of developing these increased international connections. This programme from IETM comes at a really important time for a local practitioner, particularly as we are keen to host the IETM Campus in Belfast in 2023.”

Application deadline: 7 June 2021.
