The Australian Performing Arts Centres Association is the national peak body representing and supporting performing arts presenters from the iconic Sydney Opera House to remote regional centres.
We support the development of the performing arts throughout Australia with our broad membership including arts centres, independent producers and companies, festivals and performing arts consultants, agencies and funding bodies.
Annually APACA members present in excess 53 000 events, with over 11 million attendances, in an industry valued by the Australian Bureau of Statistics in excess of $1.1 billion.
APACA members have the lobbying and advocacy power of Australia’s national performing arts peak body behind them when needed and in front of them leading the way with national strategic initiatives.
PERFORMING ARTS EXCHANGE & CONFERENCE – REGISTRATIONS NOW OPEN
APACA, the Australian Performing Arts Centres Association, is proud to present the 2016 Performing Arts Exchange [PAX] and ‘The New Normal’ – this years performing arts conference.
In 2015 almost 500 of Australia’s leaders in the performing arts converged in Sydney over the four days for PAX and the conference. This event set a new benchmark for intensive professional development in our industry.
In 2016 the Performing Arts Exchange will provide opportunities to genuinely connect with artists, arts managers, programmers and other industry professionals, all of whom continue to nurture and develop the brilliance of our sector. Importantly, this is also the primary opportunity this year to pitch and seek out the shows and projects that will reach audiences across Australia over the next year and beyond.
Registrations are now open.
