Brisbane Powerhouse - who produced APAM between 2014 - 2018 - engaged the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) to deliver a longitudinal evaluation of the event during these years. The evaluation includes:

  • National and international market development outcomes through showcasing work to targeted national and international producers.
  • The exchange of ideas, dialogue, skill development, partnerships, collaborations and co-productions and networks with local and international peers.

The evaluation also seeks to capture the innovation in delivery of approach, responsiveness to sector needs and focus on targeted market development activities that generate touring, partnership, skill and artistic development outcomes for Australian artists and companies.

The Executive Summary provides an overview of the longitudinal research into APAM 2014 and 2016, including event recommendations, the evaluation of national and international market development outcomes as well as key trends emerging from the data set.
