NEIGHBOURHOOD: How Might We Weather This Storm?

Date Friday 28 February
Time 9:30 AM – 5:00 PM
Venue Meat Market

2020. Forecast: Unpredictable

We are all attempting to survive massive upheavals: political, environmental, climactic, and social. For the last day of APAM, at NEIGHBOURHOOD, we will gather as an international community to talk and share stories, listen, and learn from each other.

We will hear accounts of storms weathered. We will consider new strategies, celebrate recent victories and repine failures from the past. Huddled together under the umbrella of conversation, we may just see each other through the squall. 

A partnership between Theatre Network Australia (TNA) and APAM in association with the Australia Council for the Arts, NEIGHBOURHOOD is a day of exchange exploring local and global connections in our creative neighbourhood. A day to pull-out of the business and into the big picture ideas and solutions of artists.
