What’s new for Showcase 2022?
Held on 10 May 2022 at Darebin Arts Centre, things will look a little different for this iteration of Showcase Victoria. The last two years have been extremely disruptive for programmers and audiences, and with many shows being rescheduled into 2022 and 2023, programming outcomes will be limited from this year’s event. Instead, this new one-day event will focus on Reconnection rather than touring as the main driver.
Next years event is aimed at encouraging presenters, artists and producers to use the day as an opportunity to meet, re-engage and re-connect. Selected artists and producers will receive an online performance profile featured on the Showcase Victoria website for 2022 which will serve as an alternative to the traditional pitching model, and facilitated networking with presenters will provide an opportunity for deeper discussions about your work.
Before applying, please consider these programming limitations. In the interests of transparency our presenters were recently surveyed and we have been advised that the following genres of work will be their key focus for the 2022 event:
- Work for children and families
- Dance, Physical Theatre and Circus
If you have a project that sits outside these parameters, we encourage you to contact VAPAC at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss the suitability of submitting an EOI.
Additional Information for Artists & Producers:
In addition to our online performance profiles, 2022 selected artists and producers will enjoy ample opportunities to meet and build a greater mutual understanding of the vital roles both Presenters and Producers play across our entire touring landscape.
We will be holding information webinar to discuss this before you complete your EOI on Tuesday 14 December 12:30pm – 1:30pm. More details of how to register will be released shortly.
It is important to recognise and reiterate to our producers and artists that this 2022 event is a one-off format and that we hope to revert back to our regular pitching event from Showcase Victoria 2023.
In the meantime, if you have any questions about this new model for next year, please contact email@example.com
