Out of the 1707 artists and participants involved in the 2021-22 UK/Australia Season program, 78% believe it ‘enabled them to discover new opportunities to work in both the UK and Australia’, the Audience Agency has reported.

The UK/Australia Season was a landmark, cross-discipline cultural exchange led by the British Council and Australia’s DFAT (Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade). The Season’s theme ‘Who Are We Now?’ provided a curatorial framework to interrogate the contemporary UK/Australia relationship and explore new approaches to global challenges.
