After the enormously successful Melbourne Circus SESH in November 2013, ACAPTA, in partnership with the City of Gold Coast, is very pleased to announce the next event in our series of Circus & Physical Theatre Sector Meetings will be held at the Rabbit + Cocoon on the beautiful Gold Coast on Friday 28th March 2014.

Download the Gold Coast – FINAL Program

Join us for the first-ever, no holds barred gathering of the Gold Coast Circus Arts and physical theatre sector or if you prefer a day of yarning with the ‘Queensland Carny Crew’.

Are you a circus or physical theatre performer, director, rigger, tech, producer, manager, board member, administrator, researcher, CEO, academic, researcher, trainer, friend, policy maker, funding body? Then you need to be at this SESH!

ACAPTA is coordinating this ‘SESH’ to support all of us to get together to talk about issues that are relevant to the whole circus arts sector.

It is critical that your voice is part of the mix; if we don’t know what you think then we can’t develop or move forwards as a community.

This will not be a passive ‘listen to who’s talking’ SESH, you will be doing the work – talking in small groups and making recommendations about what needs to happen to make Queensland a leader in the the Australian circus arts.

Make sure you don’t miss out on your opportunity to be part of this conversation by booking your place right now.

ACAPTA members and interested parties from other states are most welcome to attend.

SECTOR SESH SUBSIDISED REGISTRATION BALLOT:

To apply, submit a short paragraph on why you would like to attend and what your presence will add to the meeting to Angela at admin@acapta.org.au before Monday 24th February 2014 [extended]. Chosen submissions will receive a discounted $20 registration to attend the Gold Coast sector session on Friday 28th March. Please note, these places are dependent on availability.
