Be sure to visit the new site, RAFT– a temporary platform for contemporary questions. Formed out of an alliance between IETM, and Oscura magazine. It will offer “an open and democratic space for people to think about performing arts today”.

As the founders explain, they chose the name because “the idea of the space is to be, as the name itself conveys, a temporary platform made of pieces tied together.We needed a name. We kept thinking about fluidity in contemporary definitions and borders, about this ocean of information around us and between us, not unlike the ocean that divide all the writers of this project into continents. Then we had this idea of this initiative as a small temporary and basic platform made of some ideas/questions/people tied (softly) together and floating around for anyone to navigate.
