(International Arts Associations Congress)

13-17 February 2018 PLMF Arts Management co-hosted 15 umbrella organisations, which work in the cultural sector, for the inaugural International Arts Associations Congress (IAAC). The meeting in Perth Australia was called to explore commonalities and opportunities for collaboration between the participant associations and to build value for the individual members  by sharing best practice and innovation in association benefits. As a result it was agreed to draw up an MoU and take forward 5 topics: 1) The Value Proposition / Advocacy 2) Research 3) Programmes / Initiatives 4) Markets / Conferences 5) Digital tools, which we are currently working on
