The PANNZ Arts Market will take place across three days in Auckland, 4th, 5th and 6th March 2024.
This Arts Market will see a return to showcases and pitches happening live and in person, as we continue to build on having artists and their work at the centre of what we do.
Applications to pitch and showcase at the PANNZ Arts Market 2024 are now open
and close at midnight, Sunday 1 October 2023.

There are four types of pitching/showcasing opportunities available at the Arts Market 2024:
- Five-Minute Pitches (20 spots available): This will be for artists/producers with work ranging from 'in-development' to 'tour ready' and will be a live five minute pitch during the market.
- One-Minute Pitches (15 spots available): This will be for artists/producers with work ranging from 'an idea' to 'tour ready' and will be a pre-recorded one minute video played in person during the market.
- Development Showing (up to 3 spots available): This will be for artists/producers wanting to invite presenters and Arts Market delegates into their 'work in development' in some way. This might be a reading, an open rehearsal, a workshop or similar.
- Full-Length Showcases (up to 3 spots available): This will be for artists/producers with tour-ready full length works able to be showcased as a complete production alongside the Market. PANNZ will work with those who express interest to confirm details and viability of a showcase during the 2024 Market.

WHAT IS TOUR-MAKERS AND HOW DOES IT CONNECT TO PANNZ?
PANNZ was funded by Creative New Zealand in 2015 to run the national touring agency, Tour-Makers. Tour-Makers supports the touring of professional Aotearoa/New Zealand theatre, music and dance, and is a key initiative towards a sustainable touring network in Aotearoa/New Zealand. Tour-Makers’ purpose is to deliver high-quality work, with more than three people on stage, to medium-large scale professional performing arts venues throughout the country.
Each August, expressions of interest open for touring the following year. Applications are considered for suitability (marketing collateral, quality, scale and financial viability) and then a shortlist is taken to presenters to consider demand.
The 2022 Tour-Makers seasons featured A Boy Called Piano (The Conch) and Thoroughly Modern Maūi (Metro Māori Productions), touring to 12 centres throughout Aotearoa.
