About Performing Arts Platform

Performing Arts Platform is Aarhus’ development and networking platform for the performing arts.

The platform brings together, facilitates and frames a strong cluster of performing art actors in and around Aarhus. Through the sharing and the communication of resources, skills and knowledge we generate development and supporting initiatives in the performing arts community.

The platform facilitates and focuses on innovative collaborations – both within the performing arts community,  as well as other sectors.

The performing arts community is in this context defined as independent single actors and groups, institutions, organizations and associations, within the field of dance, theatre and performance – with a special focus on the independent actors.

Performing Arts Platform main focus is the local performing arts community, but we also maintain outreaching national and international perspectives. The overall aim is to create lengthy strategic collaborations as well as collaborations on project basis.

The platform connects a large number of people and organisations – from other art genres or other professional backgrounds – to the cluster, which acts in a supportive and co-creative sharing manner in regards to competences and resources.

Performing Arts Platform is supported by the City of Aarhus.
