Performance Space and the Australian Performing Arts Market (APAM) are delighted to be collaborating on LIVE EXCHANGE: the Liveworks International Delegates Program.
LIVE EXCHANGE seeks to build new connections between like-minded organisations and artists working in experimental practice. It will connect artistic directors, curators and producers from the Asia Pacific, Europe and North America, creating a platform of exchange and engagement that includes:
LIVE EXCHANGE is designed to support engagement with people located across multiple time zones, including live activity and recorded content.
“The APAM Office is deeply committed to testing and experimenting with new ways for artists, curators, producers and presenters to connect and build relationships nationally and internationally. In 2020 this work seems more vital and urgent to us all. We couldn't have a better partner in crime to do this with than Performance Space team and the Liveworks artists and their work. We're excited once again be working together to deliver LIVE EXCHANGE - our first digital delegate program - alongside the festival program,” says Catherine Jones, APAM Director.
“The national and international community is pivotal to the fabric of Liveworks. This year, while we’ll miss seeing our colleagues and artist friends from abroad in person, we’re absolutely thrilled to be partnering with the APAM office to bring Live Exchange to life. Experimenting with different ways to digitally gather, share information and generate new ideas and collaborations, Live Exchange will keep us connected at a critical moment in the year. We love collaborating with APAM and we’re excited about what will arise from this exchange.” says Jeff Khan, Artistic Director & CEO of Performance Space.
