EOIs close 10 March, 5pm AEDT

PROFILE is an opportunity for Australian and New Zealand contemporary performing artists and companies to start a conversation about their work through an online pitch presentation.

With the internationally recognised platform of APAM’s Gatherings providing a jumping-off point, PROFILE will help you share your ideas and ambitions with venues, presenters and festivals locally and globally.

Submit an Expression of Interest to pitch at the APAM Gathering at RISING this June and, if selected, you’ll work alongside APAM’s supportive and experienced team to be guided through the process to prepare and present pitches of up to 5 minutes. Pitches can be for works already premiered, or an idea in development, from all genres of the performing arts, and will be presented online to Gathering participants.

EOIs are open for performance projects spanning theatre, contemporary dance, circus, physical theatre, hybrid or experimental works, sound art, multi-artform, and works for multigenerational audiences. There are two categories for artists:

HERE’S WHAT WE MADE: for works already premiered, either IRL or digitally, seeking further presentation opportunities

HERE’S OUR IDEA: profiling an idea in development for further collaborations, commissions and presentation

EOIs are submitted online (see below for form link). The EOI process is designed to be as simple as possible. Submitting your EOI is free, however each artist/organisation is eligible to submit an EOI for one project only.

What’s the difference between PROFILE and SHOWCASE?
Works included in PROFILE are selected by an international curatorial panel, convened by APAM, from an expressions-of-interest process. Profile sessions are fully pre-recorded and presented digitally, for widest viewing and accessibility among Gathering participants.

Works included in SHOWCASE are curated and presented as part of the host festival, RISING, who have now finalised their 2023 program which will be launched in mid March.

I have a question, who can I speak to?
APAM has provided a list of Frequently Asked Questions and other useful information (see below). If you have a question that’s not been answered in the FAQ, or if you’d like to discuss an alternative method of submitting your EOI, you can contact APAM by emailing or calling +61 (0)3 9947 1020.
