8-11 October 2009, Vilnius, Lithuania. Registration deadline: 7 September 2009; Travel Grants deadline: 25 August 2009
In 2009 IETM Autumn Plenary Meeting will be devoted to the Eastern theatre. The meeting in Vilnius will deal with Eastern promises on the one hand and Western expectations on the other. It will explore new colonization of all sorts, going from the East to the West and vice versa; and the territories culture and art have colonized in our own societies.
Not only members of IETM but non-members too can come to the meeting: online registration is required. Registration is free for those who are either the first representative of an IETM member organization attending the meeting or speaker, moderator or trainer selected and invited by the organizers. In any other case you must pay for the registration. See ITEM registration form and fees.
IETM makes several travel grants available for each Plenary Meeting. The grants can cover a part (up to 75%) of the travel and accommodation expenses in connection with the meeting.

The meeting will take place at Menu spaustuve (Arts Printing House), a performing arts centre.
