Performing Arts Markets & Platforms Fund

The objectives of this fund are to develop international markets, audiences, networks and opportunities for Aotearoa/New Zealand artists and companies. Supported by Creative New Zealand’s International Programme and administered by PANNZ.

The fund supports the attendance of artists and producers as delegates at strategic international performing arts markets, platforms and professional gatherings. To be eligible to attend a market or platform you must have a clear rationale for attending as a delegate or participant and this must be aligned to your international plan and longer-term international goals.

The international market or platform must:

  • Have a reputation as an established performing arts market or platform that generates international touring/exhibition or collaboration/exchange opportunities
  • Provide peer networking opportunities
  • Provide international exchange opportunities
  • Provide the opportunity to re-establish existing international relationships or develop new relationships that will contribute to your international success
Examples: established performing arts markets, organised gatherings of artists/arts professionals taking part in a structure programmed, or a self-designed programme alongside a key arts festival or event.
