The Performing Arts Network of New Zealand (PANNZ) Arts Market 2018, will be held Tues 6 – Thurs 8 March at the MACs Conference Centre, Wellington, Aotearoa New Zealand.

The PANNZ Arts Market is a 3-day industry event for artists and producers, industry leaders and presenters from venues, festivals and touring agencies. The core of the Arts Market is the pitches, ‘bright ideas’, Eventfinda Showcase and the Ticketmaster Music Showcase in which New Zealand artists pitch their new work to presenters from theatres, venues and festivals. Forums, networking events and trade displays, support the pitch programme.  The Market is timed to coincide with the NZ Festival and NZ Fringe so that you can catch some of the best in New Zealand and international performing arts while you are in Wellington. 

The PANNZ Arts Market is the only event of its kind in New Zealand. Since launching in 1999, it has become a vital forum for promoting original New Zealand work and knowledge sharing across the industry. PANNZ Chair, James Wilson said that he hopes the event "raises the cultural capital of Aotearoa" as it aims to "nurture, develop and support new voices and new ideas, and create opportunities for those voices to reach audiences right across the country."

Applications to pitch at PANNZ Arts Market 2018 are now closed. Artists and Producers interested in pitching in the future are encouraged to come along as delegates. Get to know the presenters and gather advice and ideas!
