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.
The 2013 APACA Performing Arts conference Fear No Art will be held in Canberra, May 26-28. The conference will immediately precede the Australian Theatre Forum and the Australia Council's Marketing Summit.
Registration and program information is available here.
PowerPAC, the guide for supporting the producing of work by performing arts centres is now available. PowerPAC has been commissioned by the Theatre Board of the Australia Council.
