First Nations Industry Program

APAM Gatherings

Open to First Nations producers and self-producing artists, this intensive brings together a network to share knowledge, expertise and build connections nationally and internationally. The program will cover a range of multi-artform markets, key hubs for artistic exchange, and First Nations- to-First Nations networks. Participants will also have the opportunity to hone their market development plans in preparation for the APAM Gathering.

A one-day intensive prior to the Gathering will be followed by daily touchpoints throughout the APAM Gathering to offer both continued peer learning and support from experienced First Nations producers. There will be a Zoom conference in the lead up to the Gathering to prepare and get connections and ideas flowing.

Through this program First Nations industry members will experience deeper engagement in APAM and an expanded network as well as confidence and strategic approaches towards international engagement.

Creative New Zealand is proud to support the First Nations Industry Program by assisting New Zealand participants in attending the APAM Gathering at Asia TOPA.

Information regarding the First Nations Industry Program shall be updated here as information becomes available prior to each Gathering.
