Based on the organization’s core theme, “a new image of performing arts managers,” ON-PAM will carry out a variety of projects emphasizing the cultivation of international performing arts managers.

These projects aim to help the next generation of performing arts managers expand their networks with world-class theater and festival producers, and broadly develop knowhow and connections to raise the level of performing arts creation in Japan; and gain knowledge which will enable them to respond to a variety of cultural situations. Outside of Japan, ON-PAM will carry out an international meeting in Gwangju (Korea) and an APP (Asia Producers Platform) camp in Taipei (Taiwan), and cultivate performing arts managers with an international perspective. In Tokyo, regular committee meetings will be held as committee meetings for learning and discussion, as well as symposia open to the public. Through these activities, ON-PAM aims to create opportunities for the exchange of personnel and information among performing arts managers.


Established in February 2013, Open Network for Performing Arts Management (ON-PAM) is a networking organization with the individuals who work closely with society as presenters, producers or managers of performing arts to connect artists/artistic groups and the audience. ON-PAM 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. As of the end of March 2015, over 150 performing arts managers from Japan and other countries are active members.
