Registrations are open.

 

Previous Australian Theatre Forums

The first Australian Theatre Forum (ATF) was held in Melbourne in May 2009 and was organised by the Australia Council for the Arts, largely to address key issues that the sector was facing. Since then, the ATF has come to be recognised as the main meeting place for the theatre sector. Bringing together practitioners, producers and cultural provocateurs from across the country, the Australian Theatre Forum provides a platform for an exchange of ideas.
