The Proud Performing Arts ITI Workgroup, initiated at the ITI World Congress in July 2017, is starting up. This workgroup will engage in building a global network that aims to empower, encourage and elevate performing arts with a LGBTQ+ perspective and artists working with the matter. The network will be a platform for solidarity and inspiration striving to bring forward the different conditions for LGBTQ+ people all around the world.
- Proud Performing Arts should be a platform for exchanging experiences.
- Proud Performing Arts should facilitate distribution of and make visible performing arts with a LGBTQ+ perspective.
- Proud Performing Arts should inspire to exchange between artists, producers and presenters.
