Announcing PTP Aotearoa
After two successful years delivering Australia’s only specialised training program for performing arts presenters, PAC Australia has joined forces with Auckland Live to deliver the program in New Zealand in 2023.
Presenter Training Programme Aotearoa (PTP Aotearoa) will offer a New Zealand-specific training focus, unpacking the unique challenges faced by performing arts presenters, while developing skills to enhance success and add value to audiences, stakeholders, and community. Informed by the local context, the structured program covers essential topics such as governance and financial models, marketing and audience development, working with producers, and building a balanced and diverse program.
PTP Aotearoa launches today, and Auckland Live is now seeking applications from New Zealand-based presenters to join to 2023 cohort.
PTP Australia and the extended Presenter Development Program (PDP) are due to open for applications from Australian-based presenters later in 2023.
Participants from both PTP Aotearoa and PTP Australia will have two opportunities to connect for a cross-cultural exchange as part of the 2023 program.
‘PAC Australia is immensely proud of our Presenter Training Program and the outcomes participants have been able to achieve in such a short space of time. As the only bespoke training program specifically designed for performing arts presenting, we’re thrilled to be working with our colleagues in Aotearoa to expand the reach and impact of the program.’
– Katherine Connor, PAC Australia’s Executive Director
