ADAPT Conference  
A two-day conference for live performance producers, presenters and marketers in Queensland.

arTour is thrilled to collaborate with Stage Queensland and Ipswich Civic Centre to present a two-day conference to explore how the live performance industry has responded to our emerging new normal and exchange ideas on how we can continue to adapt.

By combining forces, we’ll bring together arTour’s Queensland Touring Showcase network with Stage Queensland’s Box Office and Marketing professionals and Venue Managers/Programmers to provide an opportunity for professional development, networking and connection.

  • Learn how the industry has flexed its resilience muscle over the last twelve months.
  • Explore new works in development and potentially find a home for your current creative development.
  • Connect with your peers – in the flesh! – and exchange ideas and strategies on how we can all adapt in ever changing times.

If you are interested in touring Queensland and applying to pitch at Showcase Online in October, we strongly encourage you to attend ADAPT.

Queensland Touring Showcase Online
An online pitching event highlighting the best live performance touring work Queensland has to offer.

Following its success in 2020, producers and presenters will meet online again this year to explore touring productions that are ready to tour in 2023 and beyond. By pitching digitally we can not only expose producers to a wider network of presenters, but can also safeguard against any further lockdowns or travel bans that pop up throughout the year.
We know you’re itching to get back out on the road, and we’re dedicated to getting you there.
Submissions open in early June so keep your eye on the website and our email updates for more detail.
Curious about submitting for the first time this year? Stay tuned for the ADAPT Conference Program announcement – arTour will be presenting workshops on preparing your submission and the Pitching Process.
