Registration Now Open for Melbourne 2016 ISPA Congress

Tuesday, February 16, 2016   (0 Comments)

On behalf of our host, Arts Centre Melbourne, the ISPA team is delighted to officially launch the Melbourne 2016 ISPA Congress, Reimagining, May 30-June 4, 2016.

ISPA has not travelled “down under” since 2001 and you will not want to miss this opportunity to visit the diverse and culturally vibrant city of Melbourne. Home to one of the world’s most significant cultural precincts, ISPA delegates will enjoy the opportunity to visit and experience many of these venues and plazas.

As our hosts facilitate an exploration of what the performing arts may look like in the future, we will also have the opportunity to experience the rich culture and history of Australia’s indigenous people and home of the longest continuous performing arts traditions in the world.

Our visit also coincides with The Light in Winter Festival, the Melbourne International Jazz Festival and Sydney’s Vivid Sydney 2016 not to mention a myriad of cultural events throughout Australia and indeed the region.

At a Congress punctuated by performances, provocations and opportunities to experience Australian hospitality, you will not want to miss ISPA’s 98th Congress!
