About PACT

Australia’s original centre for emerging and experimental art.

PACT transforms the Arts by championing contemporary performance, artistic rigour and the freedom to explore the unknown. We achieve this by:

Placing artists in their first five years of professional practice at the centre of everything we do;

Prioritising diversity, inclusion and an open door approach to programming;

Facilitating an artist-led program for the next generation of cultural leaders; and

Operating a unique Sydney venue dedicated to low cost presentation opportunities for independent artists.

Since 1964 PACT has supported Australia’s most compelling emerging artists to create daring new contemporary performance. Our artists are thinkers, makers and provocateurs. They create Australia’s cultural identity by testing new ideas, pushing their practice and engaging with unique methods of audience engagement.

PACT is built on the land of the Gadigal People of the Eora Nation. We are privileged to gather and create art on their land.  We pay our respect to Australia’s First People and Elders past, present and Future.
