Welcome to PACT 2018!

PACT SALON - 35.jpg

As you’ll see, it’s going to be an incredible year here in our cosy Erskineville warehouse. We have 4 Salons, 5 world premieres and 9 new residents. Yes you read that correctly … 9 new residents.

In 2018, we are launching 3x3x3 our new residency program. 3x3x3 will see 3 artists, 3 independent companies and 3 writers calling PACT home for the next two years. These intrepid Residents will form the backbone of the company for the next two years. They’ll be creating and presenting new work, curating public programs and leading conversations about topical issues. I think you’ll agree that the Residents announced in the following pages are some of the most compelling artists and independent companies in the country. I can not wait to see what they create during their time with PACT.

We also have some equally compelling artists presenting new works in our AFTERGLOW seasons and bringing you the best Art party in town – PACT Salons. We also have a great Masterclass program, a new mental health initiative ‘Composed’, hot desks available and venue hire opportunities.

2018 is definitely the most exciting year yet. Don’t believe me? Read on and discover what the most exciting artists are doing next year.
