Creative Victoria secures three term tender to stage APAM

Creative Victoria secures three term tender to stage APAM
February 5, 2018

The Australia Council for the Arts has awarded Creative Victoria the tender for the delivery of the next three editions of the Australian Performing Arts Market (APAM).

This means APAM, Australia’s international performing arts market, will convene in Victoria in 2020, 2022 and 2024, showcasing the best of Australian performing arts to programmers from across the nation and around the world.

Working with a consortium of Victorian arts leaders and organisations, Creative Victoria will deliver APAM as a year-round marketplace aligned to key events and festivals, establishing an ongoing office to help broker connections with a global and national network of presenters, as well as platforms for live performances open to industry and public audiences.

Announcing the new venue, Australia Council Chief Executive Tony Grybowski advised "APAM has such an important role to play in our national performing arts sector and needs to respond to evolving practice and market trends.

“It will be exciting to see how a fresh approach to the APAM model will build on the existing strong foundation and expand opportunities for Australian artists and producers to reach new audiences with their work.”

APAM was established by the Australia Council for the Arts in 1994 as a platform to increase international and national touring opportunities for Australian contemporary performing arts groups and artists.

First held in Canberra in conjunction with the National Festival of Australian Theatre, the event moved to South Australia where it was presented in conjunction with the Adelaide Festival and Adelaide Fringe from 1998 to 2012.

APAM has been presented in Brisbane, in partnership with the Brisbane Powerhouse, in 2014 and 2016, and for the upcoming APAM 2018.

Creative Victoria secured the hosting of its next three editions after a highly competitive tender process.

APAM 2018 is being staged from 19th to 23rd February.
