Open Network for Performing Arts Management (ONPAM)
This network is established in February 2013 to look into the future, 10 or 20 years ahead, with the consideration of current situation surrounding our society and performing arts, as well as what took place in the preceding decades. By building a national and international network and effectively maintaining it, with the individuals who work closely with society as presenters, producers or managers of performing arts to connect artists/artistic groups and the audience, we will try to define and raise the recognition towards the social role of contemporary performing arts and to advocate on cultural policies, aiming to contribute to the benefit of performing arts and society as a whole. In order to accomplish such aim, we create a membership network that is an “open network” and, unlike an association or a project consortium, it will connect all the members horizontally.
