Mobilise - 2015 APACA Conference

Monday, 17 August 2015 to Thursday, 20 August 2015 from 9:00 AM - 6:00 PM

Carriageworks, Eveleigh, Australia


Are you a Presenter looking for a terrific show for your audiences?

Are you a Producer hoping to tour your production?

The Performing Arts Exchange (PAX) will be the only face-to-face national touring market in 2015 and will take place over the first two days (17th and 18th August 2015) of the Mobilise conference.

PAX is open to anyone with a professional interest in performing arts touring. Producers D0 NOT have to be selected for a presentation spot or even have a tour-ready production to be able to attend. PAX offers a professional development experience and valuable networking opportunities. Once registered, all producers will have the opportunity to list their production or their organisation on the conference app.

Presentation Opportunities

Producers and performance-makers will promote their work in the following categories:

  1. Five Minutes of Fame –  5 minutes for an “elevator pitch” to introduce an organisation or make a specific announcement.
  2. Good To Go – 15 minute pitches of tour-ready productions.
  3. Watch This Space –  production excerpts from 7 to 20 minutes.
  4. Let’s Keep Talking – a 15 minute on-stage relaxed conversation with the Performing Arts Exchange facilitator so that producers and performance-makers can explore their latest touring production, talk about changes in their organisation, and/or discuss a big idea for a future production.
  5. Encounter Sessions –  individual breakout groups for experienced touring producers and performance-makers where there is a need for a more intimate dialogue with a small group of presenters.

Selection Process

Selection of presentation opportunities have already been undertaken through an Expression of Interest process and are listed in the program.
