About this event

From 19–21 Oct 2022, Wed–Fri, the 25th Association of Asia Pacific Performing Arts Centres (AAPPAC) Conference will be taking place in-person (and online) in Singapore. This year’s conference, hosted by Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay, with the theme of FUTURE FORWARD, will explore new considerations and possibilities for arts centres and artists.


Future Forward

In these complex and uncertain times, with many industries slowly being recalibrated as the world recovers from the pandemic, what is the way forward for the arts?

This conference is an opportunity to gather and explore new considerations and possibilities for arts centres and artists. Through invigorating panels, discussions, presentations and networking sessions, AAPPAC delegates will consider future directions from the viewpoints and practices of three key areas:

1) interdisciplinarity and creative leadership,

2) inclusivity and access,

3) sustainability in all its myriad dimensions.

This hybrid event consists of live gatherings held across multiple venues in Singapore’s diverse arts landscape as well as virtual components. Join us in one of Southeast Asia’s most vibrant cities, or online from wherever you are, as we reflect on the paths ahead for artistic and cultural leadership, creation and presentation.

Programme Highlights:

1) Keynote Presentation - Notes from the Future

2) Panel Discussions:

- Creative Leadership in Interdisciplinary Performance

- 360̊ Inclusivity: Dismantling Barriers to Accessing the Arts

- Sustainability: Expanding Solutions for our World

3) AAPPAC Connecting Series – Pitch Session

4) Breakout Sessions

5) Venue and Studio Tours (in-person only)

Sessions which are livestreamed will remain available on the site as video-on-demand until 30 Nov 2022. Captioning for the livestreams is available in English, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese (Simplified).
