Australian Performing Arts Exchange [APAX]

Dates for our 2022 gathering have landed!

 

APAX Mon 5 – Fri 9 September 2022, NIDA (Sydney) and online.

At the close of the recent APAX, Executive Director Katherine Connor announced that APAX 2022 would be delivered both online and in-person at NIDA in Sydney on 5-9 September 2022.

“I’d like to say that we’re so pleased to be entering into partnership with NIDA, but the fact is, we’ve been working with NIDA for two years now and will actually just be bringing this partnership into fruition in a more sector-facing way in 2022. We’re thrilled to be working with this influential and important institution and that APAX is aligned to this organisation beyond just a venue partnership – a real partnership that is focussed on strategic professional and sector development for the benefit of PAC Australia members, and indeed everyone who benefits from APAX.”

APAX 2022 will open with a bang. Commencing at sunset on the Monday evening of the 5th September with our own opening night party, we’ll be celebrating being together again and celebrating getting through a couple of horrible and hard years.

More information will be released over the coming months, with applications and registrations expected to open in April/May 2022.

In the meantime, get those dates in the diary!

2021 WRAP UP

 

Over 500 delegates – presenters, producers, artists and many others – from around Australia and abroad joined us online for four days of connection, provocation and inspiration.

We’ll post a detailed wrap up of the week-long event shortly, but in the meantime, thank you to all our delegates, partners and supporters for your contribution to making APAX 2021 so special. Even online, APAX continues to be a highly valued and valuable platform for connection and collaboration.

“It has always been outlandish, preposterous, and harebrained to try to live full-time as an artist in this country, and to make new work for the Australian theatre… We have always worked against ridiculously negative forces to make it happen… And still, we do it. And by some sort of reckless ambition, we get better and better at doing it… We strive for excellence, and we achieve it often.”ALANA VALENTINE – State of the Arts Address

PREVIOUS PAX – 2019

In 2019, PAX continued to focus on relationship building as much as pitching productions. Producers spent more time engaging with presenters beyond pitching opportunities, through structured networking sessions, our “First Base” program that matches you with presenters, dedicated space for meetings as well as social events designed to facilitate authentic dialogue between producers and presenters.

Our program of pitches, showcases and full-length presentation is curated through an independent industry panel of producers and presenters.

Whether it’s to buy work, find creative or presenting partners, or build your network, this is the place to be.
