Indonesian performing artists had the opportunity to meet six UK event promoters who visited Indonesia Performing Arts Market (IPAM) 2013. These six UK event promoters, representing UK arts centres and festivals, were brought to IPAM by the British Council Indonesia.
This was an immense learning opportunity for Indonesia performances of drama, dance, and music presenting at IPAM. The UK event promoters gave a seminar at the IPAM addressing how to package work, promote, manage international touring and how to be buyer friendly.
