Some of Victoria's most innovative arts organisations are paving news ways to work overseas, leading to greater cultural exchange and economic opportunity, and enriched creative practice.
For many small to medium arts companies, international activity is part of their core business. Expanded audiences mean expanded earning potential, more opportunities to present work and opportunities for cost-sharing and other forms of production financing and resourcing.
International activity, supported though Creative Victoria’s Music Works, VicArts Grants and Strategic Initiatives connected Victoria to all continents of the world in 2017.
Victorian companies and creative practitioners have embarked on new experiments in international production. Working in partnership with local hosts, they have connected with new audiences and developed new creative relationships, using out-of-the-box means to bring their creative output to the world.
Other support programs and initiatives – in screen and design – and international activities of creative industry institutions and multi-year companies will be added to this map as data becomes available.
Gathering data will inform future development of this measure.
