Performing Arts Exchange

Performing Arts Exchange










The next Performing Arts Exchange and PAC Australia conference MAKING SPACE will be held at the Red Earth Arts Precinct, Karratha 2-6 September, 2018. 

The Performing Arts Exchange (PAX) is PAC Australia’s flagship networking and development event. It’s a national face-to-face market which brings together producers and presenters from across the country to create and maximise touring opportunities and build relationships.

“Whether pitching or simply as a producer delegate, more happens in the moments between scheduled events than could ever happen without being in the room…”

PAX is the essential marketplace for programmers, presenters and producers. Whether it’s to buy work, find creative or presenting partners or build your network, this is the place to be.

Make sure to follow us on Facebook for updates.

Producers pitching or presenting at PAX will receive travel support – PAC Australia members are eligible for additional travel subsidy. More information available here.

2017 Performing Arts Exchange – HIGHLIGHTS


“PAX provides a unique and invaluable service in bringing producers and presenters together so that outstanding live performance can travel to audiences around the country, especially to regional Australia. The connections formed at PAX provide ultimately lead to national tours, supporting bringing outstanding live performance to regional and remote audiences around Australia. The results that can be achieved through face to face meetings are invaluable and through this latest conference APACA have proved that the live performing arts industry nationally is all the richer for the Performing Arts Exchange.”

“PAX is an essential marketplace for presenters, programmers, producers and artists. It enables Australian performing artists to bring their work (new and existing) to the attention of presenters from around the country, build relationships, foster potential collaborations and create and maximise touring opportunities. This year’s PAX was the most significant gathering of the national performing arts industry in 2016 and by any measure an outstanding industry event.”

[Jodi Glass: Slingsby Theatre]

As the premier national event for performing arts centres, PAX provided invaluable networking and introduction opportunities, with members of almost all public performing arts venues in attendance as well as a very significant representation of performing arts organisations, producers and performing artists from across Australia.”
