What is the Atlantic Presenters Association’s (APA) Festival Network?

For the past few years, the APA has been working to refine its programs and services to better meet the unique needs of its festival members. In March 2015, the APA hosted a Festival Network Development meeting to create an action plan of network priorities and services of interest. A Working Group of members has been created bring these action items to life in collaboration with the APA staff. The discussions at meetings over the past year have informed the February meeting agenda.

Who’s attending the meetings?

The meeting is open to Festivals, including both members and non-members of the APA. Multiple representatives per organization are welcome and encouraged.

Why participate?

“Like the theatre presenters within APA’s membership, festival members can benefit greatly from opportunities to network, share ideas, participate in education sessions, group purchase and block book artists. Ultimately APA can help us grow our audiences and do our jobs better, easier and more profitably.“ - Troy Greencorn, Stan Rogers Folk Festival, NS

“Having an organization like APA help coordinate bookings on behalf of the Festival Network Development Group, introduces festivals like ours to opportunities that we wouldn’t otherwise have access to.” - Don Quarles Executive Director, Summerside Lobster Festival, PE

"The APA Festival Network presents a fantastic opportunity to our Maritime Festival community as a whole. By creating an avenue to collaborate and communicate efficiently through workshops and webinars, we both individually and collectively can grow and advance this budding industry" – Paul McAllister, Feels Good Follyfest, NB
