The Backstage Affair (BA) is made up of three passionate backstage management professionals, who came together with a question on how to make a career in the backstage scene more sustainable.
We strongly believe in shaping the future of backstage management and are dedicated to committing our full effort and resources towards this mission. We want to bridge the gap between education and vocation and create opportunities for aspiring young talents from diverse backgrounds to carve out meaningful, sustainable and long-term careers in the arts, entertainment and recreation industry. We are invested in both professional and personal growth.
We believe in community and the importance of collaboration. We support artists and performing arts companies and take their ideas from concept to reality by providing high-quality, professional backstage management services. We work with a strong network of practitioners from various sectors to develop a suite of well-rounded vocational programmes. We believe in sharing resources, ideas and knowledge.
We want to create a better tomorrow.
