PAC Australia Discussion Groups – For Members Only!

PAC Australia’s online discussion groups are among the most valuable services we offer exclusively to members.

We have a continuously expanding network of over 200 of the nation’s leading arts industry professionals, who use our discussion groups to stay connected, seek advice, and share knowledge. The groups are email-based, meaning you can communicate with members of a group using a single email address.


Member Discussion Group

Make contact with the entire PAC Australia membership via one email. Discussions vary from sector development, to letting patrons take drinks into the theatre – so there’s no silly questions. PAC Australia staff also use this group to communicate important notices to our members and keep you up to date with important information relevant to our industry.


Marketing Discussion Group

This group comprises marketing professionals from the PAC Australia membership. Chat branding, audience development, ticketing and more with like-minded movers and shakers.


Venue Discussion Group

A place for venue managers within our network to discuss all things venues and venue management.


Venue Hire Managers Discussion Group

New in 2020, this group is a dedicated space for venue hirers and programmers to delve into contracts and policies, wrestle with programming issues and gain support from peers.
