POSTPONED: Workshop 2 - Pitching and Networking (Alice Springs)
WORKSHOP 2 – Pitching and Networking
Two key ways to interact with an Arts Market is to “pitch” your show and network with people. This workshop will have practical sessions where participants can trial some methods of pitching (selling) their work, and get some extra tips on how to network.
Here Liz Rogers will be joined by some guests who have a wealth of experience in the world of ‘schmoozing’ and buying/selling shows. What is your project? How will the work stand out? What to avoid doing.
The workshop is relevant to those that have secured a pitching spot at APAM, and for anyone else who’s interested in learning more skills! Available for people at all stages of experience.
The Australian Performing Arts Market will be hosted by Darwin Festival in August 2021 bringing a number of leaders of the performing arts world to the Top End. Arts Markets have fast become the most efficient way for producers and artists to network, see where their own work fits in the context of Australia, and to sell their tour-ready shows.
To take advantage of this opportunity to network with national and international presenters when they converge on the NT’s Hot August Nights, Artback NT will be running a series of workshops to help demystify the world of Arts Markets.
ABOUT YOUR HOST
Artback NT: connecting people and place through arts development and touring.
Liz Rogers, performing arts manager of Artback NT, is responsible for supporting artists and arts workers based in the Northern Territory of Australia. Touring opportunities have been delivered throughout the NT, nationally and internationally.
Born and raised in Darwin, Liz spent ten years based in Sydney learning the art and logistics of theatre production in both not-for-profit and commercial ventures. In that time she worked predominantly on musicals and children’s shows. Her work has taken her touring overseas in Australasia, the Middle East and Europe. Her unique background as a production manager, stage manager, lighting and sound designer has lent perfectly to understanding the needs of the productions that she now produces.
