The international body is called International Museum Theatre Alliance (IMTAL). International Museum Theatre Alliance Asia Pacific aims to represent and offer services to all of its members and also to partner members in IMTAL Americas and IMTAL Europe.
IMTAL Asia Pacific is:
the formal conduit for all museum theatre practitioners
the overseeing organising team for forums and conferences
the host for events with workshops, master classes and special guests
an advocate for performance in cultural organisations

IMTAL Asia Pacific has a network of around 200 people in Australia, New Zealand, New Guinea, Japan, China, and Singapore. Members are invited to join from around the world.
