The IETM International Network for Contemporary Performing Arts is a network representing over 500 organisations and individual professionals, from independent artists to public cultural agencies, theatres and festivals, working in the performing arts industry in all disciplines around the world. The IETM holds two plenary meetings a year in European cities, which include conferences and debates, pitching and networking sessions, and an artistic programme.

Participating in the IETM is an opportunity for performing arts professionals to develop international contacts and deepen their understanding of the challenges facing the industry.
