The APAM Gathering at DreamBIG focuses on work for multigenerational audiences. It recognises that artists know their audiences and are creating inclusive experiences for them and within the shared experience of the work; it holds the potential for impact, empathy and play.

This program will bring together 250 participants from across the country and internationally to engage in a Digital and In Person program of performance, dialogue and networking.

For our second APAM Gathering we find ourselves in new conditions. Like many in the sector, we have had to change the way we work to stay connected and active with our peers. The global performing arts community faces continued challenges from disruption and these concerns are at the forefront of this Gathering’s purpose.

Together we’ll focus on how we can work together to shift power structures, build community locally and abroad and reflect on the playfulness and curiosity we experience through artistic expression. Our aim throughout the Gathering is to build and strengthen our relationships to one another through exchange and discovery.

The Adelaide Plains are the traditional lands of the Kaurna people, stretching from Port Broughton down to Cape Jervis. Kaurna actively manage the land and live off the land and waterways of the region. (Kaurna is pronounced ‘Garna’.)

Kaurna is the language spoken, and as you move around the city today, you’ll see it used in many ways. The main square in the heart of the city is known as Victoria Square/ Tarntanyangga, reflecting the Kaurna name for the area- Tarntanyangga – which means Red kangaroo dreaming. Similarly, the river is named River Torrens/Karrawirra Parri, reflecting the Kaurna name meaning Redgum forest.

 

 

Adelaide is the capital city of the state of South Australia. With a population of approximately 1.3 million residents, it is Australia’s fifth-largest city. Adelaide is famous for its arts festivals, including Adelaide Fringe and Adelaide Festival which are held in summer.
