The APAP|NYC+ 2022 conference comes on the heels of another unpredictable and challenging year requiring innovation and flexibility for us all. In response to the current needs of the field, the 2022 conference will be a hybrid experience, both in-person and online. With the conference’s hybrid nature, we will be programming a reduced number of sessions to accommodate different attendee experiences.
The APAP|NYC+ conference will include plenary sessions and professional development sessions exploring and discussing critical and timely issues, best practices, trends, and business insights impacting the performing arts and our ever-evolving industry. Conference professional development sessions provide learning opportunities that are curated to provide participants with industry tools and knowledge to strengthen their professional practices.
Colleagues from all sectors of the field (APAP’s membership) – artists, agents/managers, presenters, producers, and other industry professionals – are invited to submit generative ideas and fully fleshed out concept proposals for professional development sessions. Session ideas and proposals should focus on teaching strategies, sharing tools, and offering insight into the artistry, business, trends, and practices of our field.

We welcome proposals and ideas for professional development in all areas of import for the field. We are particularly interested in and encourage submissions that:
- Reflect the perspectives and needs, such as those of rural, university-based, and small and mid-sized organizations and artists, BIPOC artists and professionals, agents, managers, producers and commercial or nonprofit businesses.
- Address different arts professionals’ roles and staff responsibilities in our field (e.g., programming, marketing, development, education, community engagement, venue operations, booking/sales).
- Target individuals at specific points in their careers and levels of experience (early/introductory, mid-career/intermediate, and advanced).
