Young Performers Career Advancement (YPCA) is a program designed to support classical musicians in the formative stages of their careers by offering opportunities to meet and work with established presenters, managers, agents and artists. YPCA participants will attend specialized seminar activities at APAP|NYC 2017 that provide a practical overview of the presenting and touring industry and receive expert instruction in the development of audience engagement skills. Artists will also perform at the only APAP coordinated showcase held at the prestigious NYC venue, Carnegie Hall. Learn more about the program. 


Professional Development Sessions - (Deadline was July 7, 2016)

APAP invites you to submit a session proposal to share with your community – the artists, agents, presenters, producers – all of the performing arts professionals who contribute to the FLOW of creativity, business, challenges to the norm and the dynamic thinking that will move us forward.

Session proposals should focus on strategies and indicators of successful practice through deliberate collaborations (e.g. case examples of programs or projects where APAP members have worked with peers or with partners from other fields to achieve a specified outcome).

APAP seeks professional development sessions that represent the best practices and trends in the performing arts presenting field. Colleagues from all sectors of APAP’s membership – artists, agents/managers, presenters, producers and other industry professionals – are invited to submit proposals.​ Proposals should address one of the fou​r following conference subthemes.

The conference committee has identified the following key areas of content (program subthemes) reflecting the conference theme – FLOW - around which APAP members are invited to develop session proposals. The overarching goal is to deepen our collective knowledge. It is an opportunity for us to enlighten, inspire and support each other in our work, together, to advance the performing arts across America and around the globe.

The content and focus of interactive discussion for each proposed session should address one of the following subthemes.

  1. Find Your Flow
    In a complex and challenging field, where can performing arts professionals find the necessary inspiration to do the work we do? How can we best nurture and support each other across generations – for those leaders who are emerging, at mid-career and approaching retirement? How might we work together to exchange knowledge, ideas, and vision in the service of transition and sustainability, both for individual practitioners and the field as a whole?

  2. Disrupt the Flow
    Innovative thinking and solutions often arise from identifying complex challenges and responding to them in unexpected ways. We seek examples of programs and strategies that have brought about meaningful change by disrupting the status quo of an organization’s programs and activities.

  3. MC = FLOW
    At APAP|NYC 2016, the APAP community reflected on our individual and joint roles as “makers.” In 2017, the conference will continue that thread on the role of the artist, presenter, producer (and the agent/manager) as Makers of Culture (MCs) and catalysts for community engagement and social change. What are good examples of ways in which the presenting process contributes to building awareness and changing perceptions that ultimately bring people and communities together?

  4. Workflow
    The business of presenting encompasses the sequence of strategic, creative, operational, logistical and technological decisions and processes through which performance work is developed, produced, presented and sustained, reaching audiences across the U.S. and around the world. What tools, resources and strategies are being applied to the business side of the presenting industry?

**Proposals to present information or ideas not directly related to subthemes may be considered if proposed for network/consortia meetings or consultation salons. If you have questions, please email sessions@artspresenters.org


Emerging Leadership Institute - (Deadline was June 30, 2016)

APAP's Emerging Leadership Institute (ELI) is an intensive two and a half-day seminar that develops critical leadership skills for emerging arts professionals in the first 3-7 years of their career. A new cohort of approximately 25 individuals will be selected to participate in ELI this year and attend APAP|NYC 2017. ELI is a collaborative process where learning from each other is highly valued and also a rare opportunity for each participant to reflect on and develop their ideas about leadership and their own career.
