The first Producers’ Network Meeting and Forum (PNMF) was organised by the West Kowloon Cultural District Authority’s Performing Arts Department in 2015. In view of the opening of a large number of performing arts centres in the Chinese speaking region in the next five years, producers from mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan were assembled to explore issues such as the changing arts ecosystem, the change and development in the role of producers, and continued development of artistic content and audiences. The main goal of the PNMF is to promote the role of producers and curators as facilitators and bridges between artists and key stakeholders in the arts ecosystem.

The second edition of PNMF will be held in early May of 2016. Independent producers and producers working within the growing number of arts and cultural organisations who share a similar vision will be invited to Hong Kong. The format for this edition centres on topical provocations for discussion on regional venue strategies, collaboration and production in China, and a look at the establishment and development of Informal European Theatre Meeting (IETM) as a case study for building a similar network in Asia. There will also be sessions where participants can share their concepts for future creative projects and look for partners and collaborators.

We hope that the four-day meeting and forum will give participants concrete takeaways that can be built on at subsequent events, and to help develop a strong network amongst the Asian Pacific colleagues in the coming years.
