This October OTM´s newsletter proposes mostly three types of resources: publications, meetings and jobs. When Autumn falls into the north part of the globe and in Europe, the financial crisis shadow menaces, at OTM we feel it is time to read, reflect, listen, discuss and find new solutions!

From our own production, OTM is happy to release this month the French translation of our two latest research dossiers both looking into how performing artists can be mobile yet in a sustainable way: Le Guide à la Mobilité Verte and Atomes Excités, thanks to the support of the French Ministry for Culture and Communication.

Voilà, enjoy your reading!

We welcome your comments and news to:
