ATF NOTICE BOARD

APACA FOCUS GROUPS – FREE COFFEE!

APACA (Australian Performing Arts Centres Association) is conducting some focus groups on performing arts touring during the ATF. They are looking for willing participants who don’t mind sacrificing a lunch hour (from 1.30pm) and will be in Sydney on January 21, 22 and 23. The base criteria is that you must have previously had experience with Cyberpaddock, Long Paddock, or both. As a lavish incentive to participate, APACA will shout you a free coffee! APACA is looking for a range of experiences and backgrounds, so will not necessarily be taking all volunteers, but don’t let that stop you from putting your hand up. If you would like to participate, please email Bronwyn Edinger on ed@apaca.com.au. Could you please advise:
·        Your organisation/venue
·        Its annual  turnover (roughly)
·        Whether you are city, metro, regional or remote
·        What sort of tea/coffee you want
