PANNZ core objectives are to promote and encourage a sustainable performing arts touring network, and to facilitate and develop communications networks within the professional performing arts community in Aotearoa New Zealand. As the sole marketplace for performing arts in New Zealand, the PANNZ Arts Market is integral to supporting the industry. The PANNZ Arts Market also plays a key role in supporting international opportunities for New Zealand work. 

As 2021 has shown us, ongoing uncertainty around alert levels means a hybrid format for the Arts Market is  the most viable option for showcasing work and protecting artist resource, therefore we are continuing with this format for 2022. Should a change in alert levels affect the in-person component, we will postpone this element to another date.

The 2022 PANNZ Arts Market will see pitching and showcasing take place over a four-day Digital Arts Market, combined with a one-day In Person Market at the end of the week (28 February – 4 March 2022).


In 2021, in partnership with Arts Front, we created a bespoke digital platform where the Digital Arts Market takes place. We are partnering again with Arts Front, building and adding new features onto the platform for 2022.

The Digital Arts Market will take place 28 February - 3 March 2022. This will include pitches, international showcases and one-minute pitches.

We are also partnering again with Auckland Live, enabling us to live-stream the PANNZ Arts Market and our lead up events and with Creative New Zealand to support the creation and presentation of digital showcases and a virtual programme for international Te Manu Ka Tau delegates.


The In Person Arts Market will be held in Tāmaki Makaurau on Friday 4 March 2022, concluding our week of the 2022 PANNZ Arts Market. We will have a focus on networking and panel discussions, and allow further discussion between artists and presenters, face to face. It is important you attend this valuable day of coming together.



In collaboration with the Creative New Zealand international team, we're inviting expressions of interest from artists or companies who are thinking about new ways to work, present, tour, and collaborate internationally. We’re keen to hear from anyone who has already toured or collaborated internationally (or have plans to do so), and are responding in innovative and sustainable ways.

Artists will have an opportunity to present for five minutes on an idea, a work-in-development, or a fully formed project - followed by a facilitated Q&A. The sorts of ideas we’re keen to hear about include making and presenting digital work, remote collaboration, hybrid adaptations, new approaches to engaging audiences or using spaces, using technology, and more. Full details are available here.

It's super easy to get your expression of interest in - just fill in the short Google Form here
