Arts Leaders, hosted by Abbotsford Convent
We warmly welcome APAM participants to Melbourne and to a special experience meeting artists in the Convent’s bucolic buildings and grounds. Meet four incredible arts leaders (All The Queen’s Men, Forest Collective, Polyglot and Yumi Umiumare) as you share lunch at the incredible Abbotsford Convent.
Abbotsford Convent is Australia’s largest multi-arts precinct. Originally a home for girls and women run by the Sisters of the Good Shepherd, the Convent is now an independent arts and cultural precinct, featuring 11 unique heritage-listed buildings that house 100+ independent artists and arts and cultural organisations. The Convent brings its 31 indoor and outdoor arts venues to life all year round, by collaborating with independent and small to medium artists, collectives and organisations, and curating a significant and diverse program for children, family and adult audiences annually. The Convent reaches close to 1,000,000 audiences a year and is a unique arts venue and experience not to be missed.
In addition to meeting four respected arts leaders, you will also enjoy a 3-course lunch created by Cams Kiosk, based here at the Convent, who are famous for their commitment to fresh, local, and delicious food. We know you will love meeting our artistic partners and collaborators as you enjoy your taste of Melbourne created especially for you by the Cams team.
