One event that presents over 50 of the best creative projects on offer from across Australia.
The Performing Arts Exchange (PAX) is APACA’s flagship networking and development event. It’s a face-to-face market which brings together producers and presenters from across the country to create and maximise touring opportunities and build relationships.
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.
Applications are open for South Australian artists, producers and presenters to receive bursary support to attend the Performing Arts Exchange. Applications can be made here.
We gratefully acknowledge the support of Arts South Australia.
“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.”
