The Australian Performing Arts Centres Association is the national peak body representing and supporting performing arts centres from the iconic Sydney Opera House to the remote Matt Dann Cultural Centre in Australia’s vast North West.
We also support the development of performing arts in general throughout Australia with our broad membership including arts centres, producing companies, touring organisations and funding bodies.
Annually APACA members present in excess 53 000 events, with over 11 million attendances, in an industry valued in excess of $1.1 billion.
