JanArtsNYC 2018 Celebrates New Works and Convergence of 45,000 Performing Arts Professionals and Enthusiasts from around the Globe
Every January in New York City, more than 45,000 industry professionals and enthusiasts from around the globe gather to discover new works and experience the largest celebration of the performing arts industry.
Together, with 11 major performing arts industry forums, public festivals, conferences and a full month of over 1,500 world-class showcases and newly presented full-length performances, concerts and public programs, keynote speakers, professional development and networking opportunities, JanArtsNYC has become the most anticipated global convening for the performing arts industry and the diverse audiences it serves.
Several partner events were originally incubated by APAP and then grew large enough to become self-sustaining festivals and events, including globalFEST (inaugurated in 2004), and Under The Radar Festival (2005). Wavelengths: APAP World Music Pre-Conference (2013) is part of APAP;NYC. Many of the partners developed festivals during the time of APAP;NYC to leverage the unique confluence of the largest gathering of performing arts professionals and destination for discovering new works across disciplines.
mario-garcia-durham-foto-maria-luisa-runti “The anticipation of discovering new works and celebrating the culmination of a year-long process for presenting the most dynamic forums, conferences, showcases and festivals our industry has to offer makes JanArtsNYC undoubtedly the most exciting place to be for both arts professionals and enthusiasts from around the world,” said Mario Garcia Durham, president and CEO of the Association of Performing Arts Professionals (APAP).
Since 2016, the NYC Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment has provided promotional support to JanArtsNYC.

With a wide range of events geared towards industry professionals and the general public alike, I encourage all New Yorkers to take advantage of the diverse performances, talks and professional development opportunities coming up in January.”
