Arts Market

Monday 13 March - Wednesday 15 March 2017 at Auckland Live 

More than 60 new New Zealand works will be pitched and previewed at Arts Market 2017, from Monday 13 – Wednesday 15 March, at Auckland Live. The 3-day event brings together more than 170 local and international arts professionals, emerging and established artists and producers, and presenters from venues, festivals and touring agencies.

A vital forum for promoting New Zealand work, the Arts Market was launched in 1999, with the Entertainment Venues Association of NZ (EVANZ), and is produced by the Performing Arts Network of New Zealand (PANNZ).
