The Annual BATS Summit (TABS) 24-26 November 2017 – FREE

For the first time, we’ll be powering up our artists this November with The Annual BATS Summit (TABS)!  

TABS is designed to fuel our artists’ creative fire and support their development.  

The weekend programme of free events will be accessible to performing arts practitioners wishing to upskill. It will focus on areas of professional development identified by the sector as key to career sustainability in the arts, including health and wellbeing, advocacy for the arts, sponsorship and fundraising, with an additional spotlight on the arts practice of those involved in BATS’ key annual developmental initiative, STAB. It will also provide an opportunity for established and highly experienced industry professionals to share knowledge, and inspire creative and professional development with others in a supportive and encouraging environment.

Through BATS Theatre’s risk/share model, co-ops who achieve 60% or more of ticket sales across their season make a small contribution to an accumulating Practitioner fund. The fund was created with the intent to develop practitioners. TABS is also being supported by the Wellington City Council.
