What kind of struggles do art workers face in their everyday work? Why does artistic and cultural work often stay invisible and underpaid? Which are the possible alliances that can be formed to make these issues more visible and to improve the social position of art and cultural workers?
These are some of the main questions that the session “Art is not alone” of the IETM Belgrade Plenary Meeting 2022 has been dealing with. Coming from different cultural and professional contexts and having different experiences in various struggles of artists and cultural workers across Europe, panellists and the moderator brought in valuable insights and possible answers to these questions.
