Applications are now open to apply to pitch and showcase at the 2023 PANNZ Arts Market. 

The Performing Arts Network of New Zealand (PANNZ) Arts Market is Aotearoa/New Zealand's premiere event for artists, producers, presenters and industry leaders from across the performing arts sector.

The 2023 PANNZ Arts Market is a hybrid format - a two-day Digital Arts Market followed by a two-day In Person Gathering that will be held alongside the Auckland Arts Festival..

The PANNZ Arts Market provides a unique environment where networks and relationships are built, and lasting partnerships are formed. It’s a place where we collaborate as a community to encourage the sharing of performing arts throughout Aotearoa/New Zealand and internationally.

A Hybrid Arts Market

Artists will present works in live streamed Pitch/Showcase sessions via our digital platform in the two-day Digital Arts Market (13 & 14 March 2023). Presenters and industry peers can then engage with artists and their works in both real time and on-demand. The Digital Arts Market also includes panel discussions, and opportunities to connect and network.

The two-day In Person Gathering (15 & 16 March 2023) is designed to facilitate networking opportunities, and to host panel discussions which speak to the current performing arts landscape in Aotearoa/New Zealand.
