APACA’s 31st annual performing arts conference “Outside, In” and our national Performing Arts Exchange [PAX] took place at The Concourse, Sydney between August 21-24 2017.
We were thrilled to welcome back Robyn Archer as both our ‘Thinker-In-Residence’ for the conference and MC for the Performing Arts Exchange
PAX was this year’s best opportunity to genuinely connect with artists, arts managers, programmers and other industry professionals from right across the country. Importantly, it’s also the prime platform to seek out the shows and projects that will feed your audiences over the coming years.
During Outside, In our international and local speakers focussed on innovative partnerships, we examined our unconscious biases and encouraged our industry to look outward beyond the ‘usual suspects’ and invite people into our business to make it richer and more diverse.
PAX and the PAC Australia conference continue to set the benchmark for intensive professional development and thought leadership in the industry.
At PAC Australia we’re all about connecting people with performance… so, no matter how you connect (or want to connect) with the arts industry, if you work as an independent artist, a major producer, with local government, a remote regional venue or a cultural icon there’s a great conversation to be had.
