First Nations Industry Program EOIs now open

APAM Gathering at DreamBIG

Program Overview
Open to First Nations producers and self-producing artists, this program creates a network to share knowledge, expertise and build connections nationally and internationally. The program will cover topics including 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 digital program commencing on 12 May will be followed by daily touchpoints throughout the digital and in real life APAM Gathering in Adelaide to offer both continued peer learning and support from experienced First Nations producers. 

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.


The First Nations Industry Program is open to Australian, New Zealand and Canadian First Nations producers and self-producing artists. Participants will be selected from an Expression of Interest (EOI) process and will receive a free registration for the APAM Gathering as part of their participation.


EOIs are due by midnight 26 April AEST.
