TNA’s biennial Australian Theatre Forum

The Australian Theatre Forum is a landmark meeting place for Australian theatre industry professionals. Held in different locations around the country, this biennial event strengthens theatre as an art form by addressing current issues regarding policy and practice, sharing knowledge and view points, and cultivating fresh ideas that will, in turn, enrich Australian art, culture and society.


TNA is now planning the next ATF, and commissioned an independent review by Consultant Andrew Bleby in order to help us to rethink and re-articulate the purpose, values, key elements, and priorities for 2019 – 2025.

A discussion paper, with a summary of Andrew Bleby’s Review, is now available to read. We are seeking feedback via email by Monday 21st May, 2018.
