"Showcase Victoria is a critical event because it brings both artists and venues together for conversation and for ongoing relationships; it's an essential part of the arts sector in Victoria."

Get Involved

Proudly presented by the Victorian Association of Performing Arts Centres (VAPAC) with support from Creative Victoria and Regional Arts Victoria. Showcase Victoria is Australia’s leading state-based performing arts market, playing a key role in facilitating touring.

The Showcase Victoria program is curated by a revolving industry panel representing a broad cross-section of venues, programming and touring organisations from around Victoria. Successful applicants are selected according to guidelines based on artistic quality & innovation, viability, diversity & accessibility and audience appeal & community engagement.

Following the event, venues and programmers are surveyed to ascertain which projects and productions they are interested in programming for their audiences, and when. This information provides valuable insight into the viability of tours and gives participating artists, producers and tour coordinators a solid foundation from which to develop further relationships and begin the tour-building process.

Attended each year by over 250 industry members, Showcase Victoria is a market with extraordinary outcomes. Showcase Victoria also provides opportunities to network with colleagues from across the industry, planting the seeds for collaboration and partnerships for years to come.
