well, ietm is almost upon us.

it’s not the panicky environment that i was expecting in the office. mainly the tying up of loose ends and looking forward to the event. but then again, our Brussels colleagues will arrive next week and i can’t help think that they will bring with them a whirlwind of last minute activity, and a little bit of chaos. the good kind, of course!

our interns have been fantastic, and continue to support us in the 11th hour, running around shops, contacting companies, making sure all the fine detail is covered.

the companies themselves are in their final preparations, readying themselves for the international audience that awaits them next week.

the venues, especially the CCA, are sprucing themselves up and preparing for the influx of creative professionals from the four corners of the globe to turn up and inspect what Glasgow has to offer.

we are apprehensive, excited, nervous and also proud, as we wait to see what our international guests have to say about VOICES, the ietm autumn plenary, our programme, our city and our voice.
