The Australia Council for the
Arts has awarded Creative Victoria the tender for the delivery of the 2020,
2022 and 2024 Australian Performing Arts Markets (APAM).
APAM is Australia’s international
performing arts market, bringing together Australian art with programmers from
across Australia and around the world. For more than 20 years, this platform
has showcased new and established talent, fostered new networks and
collaborations, and been a critical driver for market and audience development
of Australian performing arts.
With the existing delivery partnership
with Brisbane Powerhouse concluding with APAM 2018 the Australia Council
initiated a tender process for the next APAM partner for 2020-2024.
Australia Council is pleased to announce that after a highly competitive
process Creative Victoria has been successful with an innovative new approach
to the next three editions of APAM. 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.
Australia Council CEO Tony Grybowski
said he was pleased that the proposal from Creative Victoria would ensure the
ongoing success and development of APAM.
delighted to partner with Creative Victoria on this signature platform. 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,” he said.
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. Since its inception, APAM has grown from 200 participants
in its first year to a thriving international marketplace of more than 1200
participants from all around the world.
