Established in 1994, the Australian Performing Arts Market (APAM) is Australia’s premier contemporary performing arts event that brings the sector together to exchange ideas, experience new Australian work, engage in critical dialogue, build skills and partnerships, find new collaborators and investors, and network with national and international peers.
APAM was first held in Canberra in conjunction with the National Festival of Australian Theatre, before moving to South Australia where it was presented in association with the Adelaide Festival and Adelaide Fringe from 1998 to 2012.
