In Person Gathering

Day Three of the Gathering at the Sofitel continues our Climate Justice program. You’ll be introduced to LOCAL PLAYERS: a window into Melbourne’s contemporary performance ecology. Exploring the local making context you’ll meet artists, producers and presenters as they share insight into practice in this city.

Also included in our sessions today is PROFILE: Here’s How We Work, an opportunity for presenters to pitch themselves to artists, sharing the innovative and sustainable ways they’re building relationships with artists and audiences. Members of the Confederation of Australian International Arts Festivals Initiative (CAIAF) will share some of the performance projects that have been recently commissioned and presented through the Major Festivals Initiative. After informal networking over drinks in the late afternoon, you’ll then head into the city to attend RISING performances as part of SHOWCASE in the evening.
