Performing Art Centres Summit: Setting the stage for reopening

By Ungerboeck, 5 August, 2020

As Performing Arts Centres are starting to plan for their reopening and what performances will look like in the coming months, venue leaders from across the Asia-Pacific region will gather together on Thursday 6th August, 11.00am AEST to discuss the challenges faced by the performing arts sector.

“We work in an industry that is built on collaboration. Never has this ethos been more important than in response to COVID-19. It’s wonderful to see Ungerboeck creating forums such as this one, for us to share our experiences, seek out new ideas and envisage the future of the performing arts, and I’m looking forward to taking part in the conversation”, said James Wilson from Baycourt Community and Arts Centre.

The panellists will provide insights on a series of initiatives implemented by their organisation to reimagine events, combining local partnerships, virtual experiences, and revised theatre configurations to welcome back patrons, artists, and staff safely.

“I’m excited to be part of the Summit to share and hear from others the challenges we are all facing, and to learn of the various ways we are going about responding to those challenges”, said Glen Hirst from Arts Centre Melbourne.

The panel will also welcome Heather Clarke from Sydney Opera House and Katherine Connor from PAC Australia.
