The Australian Performing Arts Market (APAM) is Australia’s leading, internationally focused industry event for contemporary performing arts. Established in 1994 by the Australia Council for the Arts, APAM showcases and promotes a thriving, diverse national sector and stimulates the ongoing dialogue, collaboration and exchange between local artists and producers and their international counterparts.
The Australian Performing Arts Market is the foremost performing arts market for Australia, New Zealand and Asia-Pacific region, with showcase performances, networking events and pitching sessions attended by over 800 delegates. In addition to help build a strong network of contacts with presenting venues and festivals in Australia and New Zealand, significant touring oppurtunites can be pursued. APAM is a key global market for this territory and there is a strong appetite for programming Irish work, across all art forms. Venues and festivals across Australia and New Zealand also are very open to sharing work and building national tours for Irish artists.
