The Association in funded primarily through the US National Endowment for the Arts and donations by a variety of foundations and public organizations. In Japan, the arts market is the best known of APAP’s activities, but it is also active as the organizer of its annual conference in New York, of marketing management grant application services as well as seminars, meetings, grants programs, workshops, and publishing of performing arts related materials, etc. In 2009, the Association also reorganized its website to serve as a more useful information source and guide to the annual conference for first-time participants as well.
