IETM - Policy Statement: Recommendation for the Work Plan for Culture 2023-2026.


    IETM Policy Statement


    This policy statement was drafted by IETM and endorsed by CircostradaEDN - European Dancehouse NetworkEFA - the European Festivals AssociationEAIPA – the European Association of Independent Performing Arts and The European Theatre Convention (ETC).

    The Work Plan for Culture is an essential mechanism for steering Member States’ collective strategies in addressing the issues that are relevant for cultural and creative sectors in the European Union. As the implementation of the current Work Plan 2019-2022 is coming to an end this year, it is vital to make sure that the priorities of the forthcoming Work Plan 2023-2026 embrace the important developments the CCSs and our societies at large have been facing in the past few years.

    In this regard, an alliance of key largest performing arts networks and associations in Europe, call on the Member States to include support to greening the performing arts production and to sustainable and geographically balanced cross-border distribution of the performing arts, aiming to support multilingualism and cultural diversity in the EU,  as one of the priorities of the Work Plan for Culture 2023-2026. This priority is entirely in line with the EU guiding strategies, such as the Green Deal and its Just Transition Mechanism, as well as the European Democracy Action Plan.
