International Museum Theatre Asia Pacific (IMTAP), a Museums Australia
SIG, is excited to present the 5th National Forum on Performance in
Cultural Institutions, an opportunity for those passionate about all
forms of performance in cultural institutions come together to explore,
debate, discuss and connect ideas and practice.

The Forum is proudly hosted by the Powerhouse Museum and the Australian
National Maritime Museum.


The date of the forum is Thursday 22nd April 2010. 


The cost of the Forum is $75 for most delegates.

Program Outline

The day begins at the Powerhouse Museum with the Keynote presentation
from Alana Valentine who will explore how curator-led

works of performance might be conceived of as the centrepiece of an
exhibition plan. Next is the first of our concurrent seminar sessions,
with sessions from leading practitioners in the field, followed by a
lively panel discussion on Meeting the needs of all involved - Artist,
audience and museum. Now armed with a lunchbox full of yummy food make
your way into Darling Harbour and find a relaxing spot with fellow
delegates to eat lunch. Or if you are interested in finding out what
IMTAP is all about grab some lunch and stick around for the IMTAP AGM.
But make sure you make it to the Australian National Maritime Museum for
a performance of I, Bunyip. Then get ready for the afternoon seminar
sessions and our Great Debate - Is Museum Theatre just an add-on? We
then head up to the nearby Harlequin Inn for our Pecha Kucha in the Pub
where you will hear about the great performance work being done by
fellow delegates. Then we suggest dinner down in Darling Harbour.
