PAC Australia and NAPACA announce new partnership.

  |   News

Performing arts industry service organisations PAC Australia and NAPACA are pleased to announce that they have entered into a new partnership.

Effective immediately, PAC Australia will undertake the financial and administrative functions of NAPACA under an initial two-year service agreement, with the intention to increase operational efficiencies across both organisations and provide additional capacity for NAPACA to focus on organisation and membership development.

With limited funding available to support the critical functions of membership and service organisations, both PAC Australia and NAPACA recognise the imperative to reduce duplication of core functions across both organisations. This streamlining will support both organisations to optimise their resources and increase the focus on service delivery for their respective members.

About PAC Australia

PAC Australia is the national peak body representing performing arts presenters, venues, producers and creators in Australia by providing leadership, building capacity and facilitating the relationships that strengthen the connection between the art and the audience. PAC Australia advocates for members on a national level with government and key stakeholders. The organisation collects data, publishes insights on the latest trends and thinking in the performing arts; hosts training programs and sector development events designed to develop and enhance the presentation of the performing arts in Australia.


NAPACA is the peak representative body for Performing Arts Centres in NSW and ACT, supporting a vibrant network of members.  NSW and ACT Performing Arts Centres are actively involved in the national touring network and support creation, production and presentation of performing arts in their communities.  More than just theatre spaces, many NAPACA members also offer rehearsal, workshop, social, conference, exhibition and event facilities and are fundamental to the cultural life of the areas that they service.

NAPACA has articulated a need for strong advocacy for performing arts centres which play such a central role in the cultural life of communities across NSW and ACT.  Existing and new members have found the sharing of knowledge, issues and solutions across the sector invaluable as they strive for best practice.
