Association for Asia-Pacific Performing Arts Centres (AAPAC)

The Association of Asia Pacific Performing Arts Centres (AAPPAC) has 34 prominent performing arts centres in the Asia Pacific region as its members. The dialogue between member-CEOs and Programming Directors facilitates ease of exchange in information on programme, training opportunities, marketing and management initiatives and technical issues.
Having access to the key decision makers of major Asia-Pacific performing arts centres, the members are in touch with the latest developments in the Asia-Pacific arts scene through networking opportunities like annual conferences.

AAPPAC was established in 1996 with the assistance of a number of prominent performing arts centres in the Asia Pacific region. AAPPAC was created with a focus of:

1. Establishing the Asia Pacific Region as a leader in the Performing Arts Industry;

2. Promoting the exchange of artistic programs in arts centres to expand the experiences of the artists and audiences within the region;

3. Leading the development of the performing arts industry in the region and to foster closer ties and better understanding among the peoples of the region;

4. Establishing and providing an information network for arts centres; and

5. Fostering the development and growth of technical and administrative skills and expertise available within the region.
