This strategy has been informed by national and international sector consultation, and an evaluation of the activity delivered under the Australia Council’s International Arts Strategy 2015-2020.

The priorities of the new strategy are to:

  • rethink and expand the concept of mobility through testing dynamic engagement models that include digital, hybrid and in-person connection   
  • leverage technologies and digital platforms for creation, distribution, networking, and increasing discoverability of Australian work  
  • activate borderless thinking to build reciprocal and multilateral partnerships across regions and industries, and leverage co-investment    
  • strengthen First Nations exchange that is First Nations-led and self-determined   
  • amplify Asia Pacific engagement, and the perspectives of the Asia Pacific diaspora in Australia   
  • diversify income and revenue streams to foster sustainable careers and business models by increasing access to markets, information and networks and showcase Australian work to global audiences and influencers   
  • foster risk-taking, experimentation and innovation in creation, distribution, connection and profile-building   
  • centre equity and access and reflect Australia’s diversity   
  • embed sustainability through research and investment in best-practice models and frameworks to minimise the sector’s carbon footprint.
