Regional Presenter Strategy

Using this consortium to collectively commission, invest in and co-produce localised regional work will significantly benefit our programming commitment to regional audiences; it will build audience capacity and diversity, and most importantly it will increase exposure for regional arts. Members – Regional Presenter Strategy

Performing Lines and a consortium of presenter partners are joining forces to deliver this bold new strategy for multi-artform work to be developed and shared throughout regional Australia.

In a changed arts landscape, consortium members are seeking the next horizon line, demonstrating an increased appetite for curatorial risk, a more direct involvement in producing new work and an interest in alternative models – participatory, site-specific, multi-disciplinary.

This dynamic new consortium will focus on three key areas:

  • artist development: building local creative capacity for artists is regional areas;
  • audience development: exploring new ways for regional audiences to experience performance;
  • presenter development: exploring co-commissioning, co-producing and other new models for  project investment and development.
