The mission of IN/PACT New Music Network, formerly known as "CARTEL", is to create a recurring forum for reflection on the major issues facing new music presenters worldwide. It aims to share experiences, points of view and expertise, and to create spaces where these reflections can take place.

Over the past 10 years, these meetings have brought together more than thirty presenters from all over the world, either online or in person.

The network also aims to explore ways of collaborating on international co-production and co-presentation projects, taking into account current challenges (ecological footprint, sustainability, inclusion, etc.).

IN/PACT New Music Network is a developing project which hopes that its structure and organization will evolve as a result of the input of its participants. It is looking for established, open minded programmers interested in diverse programming, able to manage different types of projects and used to working with a variety of artists and producers.
