APAX 2021 Registrations are now open

  |   News

With options to attend both in person and online, APAX 2021 opens up access to delegates across Australia and internationally through our new digital platform.

We know there’s work to be done before our sector can confidently claim to be passed the pandemic, but for one week you’re invited to join us as together we pause and relinquish tiring conversations about crisis and recovery. Let’s shift the conversation from emergency to EMERGENCE and get excited about the possibilities and opportunities we now face, as individuals, as organisations and as a sector.

APAX 2021 will be filled with refreshing discussions about opportunity, inclusion, and new models of success. Together, we’ll share details about new and upcoming work, continue connecting producers and presenters from around the world, and provide those long-awaited face-to-face networking opportunities and professional development programs.

You can start to check out the professional development program (Thur – Fri) now with the Arts Market program (Mon-Wed) to be announced in full on 17 June 2021.

In person …. your network in the one place, at the one time.
and with options to join online … 2021 will be out most accessible APAX yet!

We can’t wait to be together again this September. And we invite you to quench your thirst for connection and recalibrate yourself and your organisation to THRIVE!
