Climate Futures: Responses to climate change in 2030: Forum for the Future 2008 (pdf)


An Australia Council for the Arts and IETM Collaboration Project 2010-2011.

Climate Futures describes five different worlds all set in 2030, each responding to climate change in different ways. The scenarios are based on wide research and consultation and a rigorous methodology. They aren’t predictions for the future, and we don’t think that one scenario is necessarily more likely than another. But we do hope that they present elements of the possible future in a plausible and convincing way, and stimulate and challenge the reader.

The Collaboration Project seeks to better understand the carbon impacts resulting from the complex area of international exchange and touring, and develop a set of tested recommendations with broad applicability to support joined up, consistent and accountable action in this sphere.

International Co-Production Manual the journey which is full of surprises.

Written and researched by Judith Staines, Sophie Travers & M J Chun.


The Book of Common Knowledge.


The idea for the International Co-Production Manual first came from the Korea Arts Management Service (KAMS) who in the past five years have developed strategies to support Korean performing artists and companies to enter overseas markets. KAMS joined with IETM, whose 30 years experience as an international network for contemporary performing arts places them at the forefront as an observer of trends in the quality, development and contexts of contemporary performing arts in the global environment. Both partners wanted a study that would inform their members and constituents and honour diverse experiences of international co-production and collaboration.
