Australian Performing Arts Exchange [APAX]

APAX is your network, in the one place at the one time.


The Australian Performing Arts Exchange (APAX) has evolved from an arts market and a conference into a single national gathering of more than 450 performing arts workers to develop tours and cultivate the partnerships that support the ongoing creation and presentation of Australian performing arts.

As the sector continues to work through an endlessly disruptive pandemic, APAX is creating space for artists, presenters and producers to collectively grapple with the future of touring and presentation.

Alongside a range of pitching, showcasing and networking opportunities, the gathering supports the professional development of delegates, showcases sector innvoation and best practice and supports industry renewal through knowledge exchange.
