APATA – The Australian Performing Arts Teachers Association

Frequently Asked [Questions]

The Australian Performing Arts Teachers Association [APATA] is Australia’s uniting body for teachers, educators and industry practitioners working and creating in the performing arts. Our aim is to connect teachers and educators with industry as they lead those seeking inspiring careers. 
Our vision is to be Australia’s leading body dedicated entirely to all disciplines in performance.  We connect through our online member community, industry events, partnerships and national awards program. Whether you are located in regional Australia or city central we warmly welcome all members of our national community to participate, collaborate, connect, and inspire.
We believe in sharing – ideas, knowledge, experience, expertise and deep insights.

Not at all! We encourage all members of the performing arts community to join and participate. As such we have several different membership options available. Check them out HERE.

Latest news, events and experiences straight to your inbox usually weekly unless a special offer is available.

Did you know as an APATA Member you can advertise your shows, programs, and events all inclusive with your annual membership.

We warmly welcome your contributions to share with our community: articles, what’s on, perhaps you have a masterclass to share. Get involved and let others know what you are up to and what’s happening on your calendar!

Our audience also loves to hear from industry – expertise, hints and tips…

If you have an interview you wish to share, student and studio news, articles on your achievements and challenges, your own story, student projects, productions on the road through to your school or production house up and coming events, examination news, hints and tips, scholarship and/or internship news, or perhaps products our community would be interested in learning about send them on through and share. You might also have news and information about summer schools, workshops, eisteddfods, masterclasses, guest teacher experiences, or expertise in the realm of performing arts our reading audience would thoroughly enjoy. We’d absolutely love you to hear from you!

Anything outside the box we must know about…well that would be wonderful too!

Fear not we will have you back into your account in no time. Just select “Login” and follow the prompts to reset your password. You’ll receive an email with instructions on how to create your new password to your nominated email account.


For the most part absolutely you can, Yes!

We do however occasionally hold member-only events. But mostly our events are open to everyone. Members do get an excellent discount and additional perks though 😉 so you might want to check out our membership options over HERE

You certainly can, unless of course it’s a member-only event (we will let you know if plus ones are available).

Bummer! Not to worry just send us an email at events@apata.com.au and be sure to include your registered membership email, event invoice and details of any other members you’ve booked on behalf of and we will get it sorted out.

This one’s easy! Your invoice will be sent to your nominated email account at the speed of light after booking. If you can’t locate your invoice, have a quick check in your spam or junk folders. Still no luck? Send us an email at events@apata.com.au and we will track it down for you.

Send a quick email to events@apata.com.au with their details and just remember to include your booking reference and membership email.

Yes, please do! If your requirements have changed since you made your booking or you forgot to include them just pop all the details into a quick email and fire it off to events@apata.com.au and don’t worry we will get back to you to let you know we’ve received them.

Here at APATA we aim to be as paperless and eco-friendly as possible! Which is why we will never ask you to print off and bring a ticket with you to one of our events. On arrival we’ll have your name badge ready to rock! You’ll receive all event information and instruction via email and/or text message. We also won’t weigh you down with flyers and collateral because no one needs that!

Ah…no but to meet and greet your guests in the foyer would be great! Everyone will also have a name badge to guide them to their table – we’ll have plenty of ushers on hand to help guests out on arrival even the late runners. You can send us your branding or logo to events@apata.com.au up to 7 days prior to the event and we will have your table looking snazzy for you on arrival.

Quick find a body double! Alternatively, you can send us an email up to 3 days out from the event to let us know who will be coming in your place. As all sales are final a refund won’t be possible, but you can most certainly transfer your ticket to another member, just be sure to have them let us know at registration that they’re replacing you.

Excellent we love all your feedback: good, bad or in between. Reach out to us at hello@apata.com.au and let us know what’s on your mind.

Sorry! We might not have had your question before, but I’m sure one of the team in the office will have an answer. Send your question on over to us at hello@apata.com.au and we will aim to get back to you in 24-hours (business hours). Alternatively, if you need an answer asap give us a call on 1300 582 580.
