APACA | Connecting people to performance …

Welcome to APACA

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 rapidly growing Associate membership including 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.

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.


2015 APACA Conference – Mobilise: Creating Momentum

Registrations are now open. You can view the program here.

Join international arts management guru Michael M Kaiser and national and local speakers and arts practitioners as we create a hot bed of ideas, provocations and solutions at Mobilise, the annual APACA performing arts conference.

Held at Carriageworks in Sydney, we will delve into how to Mobilise our organisations, our communities, our audiences, our policy-makers and ourselves.

As part of Mobilise, the Performing Arts Exchange will bring producers and presenters together in new ways as we explore how to Mobilise our productions at the only national touring market for 2015.

Catch up with colleagues; make new connections; re-invigorate your vision; see and hear about work that moves you.

Join us at the premiere industry event of the year, as we Mobilise together.  Read more here.
