ITI Annual Conference: Conflict & Care
Dispute as a part of transformation within the performing arts and its institutions


The ITI annual conference „Conflict & Care“ addresses the potential of conflict towards transformation while considering care as a crucial perspective and practice. Considering hierarchies and power within the performing arts and its institutions, it aims at creating an empowering space from marginalized points of view.

How can we disagree as we take care of each other and move towards transformational processes within the performing arts and its institutions?

Discussions around power and dominance often are shaped by unhealthy and power-upholding dynamics. Wishing for controversy, accountability, and repair, the conference brings together cultural workers and artists presenting their work at the festival, mentoring at the ITI Academy, or transforming the German art scenes.

In panel and roundtable discussions with the audience, they share their expertise and debate: What are conflict dynamics that uphold power and dominance? How to create and take up space from marginalized perspectives? How to give away power and be part of transformational processes? How to embed accountability and repair in disagreement?
