Last month, organisations and independents from theatre, dance, circus and other live art forms attended the biennial gathering for the national performing arts sector, the Australian Performing Arts Forum (APAF).

Theatre Network Australia (TNA) has been producing and running APAF since 2009, bringing together around 350 delegates from across the country. This year, delegates enjoyed three days of speakers, facilitated conversations, networking and socialising in Brisbane, where APAF was held during the Brisbane Festival.
