APAX travel bursaries announced

  |   News

PAC Australia is pleased to announce that there will be a limited number of travel bursaries available to attend the Australian Performing Arts Exchange (APAX) in Cairns/Gimuy for artists, producers, and presenters from New South Wales, the Northern Territory, Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania and Western Australia.

APAX is the national market and professional development gathering of performing arts professionals to develop tours and cultivate relationships that deliver presentation outcomes for communities across Australia.

Securing travel bursaries continues our commitment to greater access and representation at APAX, allowing more people to connect with the event.

Bursaries provide financial support for delegates’ costs associated with attending APAX, including flights, accommodation, ground transport and per diems as well as an additional contribution for unwaged independents.

Bursaries will be distributed through two avenues:

  1. Direct support for producers and artists who are selected to present in the market program who meet eligibility criteria.
  2. Remaining bursaries will be distributed through an open application process, with further details available in May.

PAC Australia acknowledges the generous support of the APAX travel bursaries from Arts NT, Arts South Australia, Arts Tasmania, Create NSW, the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland and the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, Western Australia.

Unfortunately state government support has not been provided in 2023 for delegates from Victoria and ACT.
