How to realise international fair practice for artistic and cultural cooperation? DutchCulture warmly invites you to the Defining Fair International Cooperation meetup as part of the Forum on European Culture.



During this meetup, IETM, the largest performing arts network in the world, will present the toolkit for international artistic and intercultural engagement. This toolkit was developed in collaboration with DutchCulture and On The Move to address and create awareness about inequality and privilege in international cultural projects and cooperation.

After the presentation of the toolkit, an international panel of art professionals from Suriname, Morocco, Indonesia, the UK and The Netherlands will discuss their professional experience in international cultural cooperation and which solutions from the toolkit are useful to their professional practice. Which changes can and should be made? How can we define fair international practice for all and what would tangible solutions look like?
