Applications Now Open for INTERSECT
Mid-career professionals from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, culturally and linguistically diverse and minority ethnic backgrounds* are invited to take part in a new peer knowledge exchange.
INTERSECT is open to curators, artistic directors, programmers, publishers and producers from the performing arts, visual arts, literature and screen sector. Alumni of previous British Council and DARTS programs are encouraged to apply as well as those who have not previously participated.
Six British and Australian arts professionals will be selected to travel to each other’s countries to connect with international colleagues, share ideas and collaborate. INTERSECT is designed to be a peer-to-peer exchange over the course of nine months in support of each others’ vision.
INTERSECT was developed from stakeholder consultation which began with workshops facilitated by DARTS and Footscray Community Arts Centre. The Advisory Group includes leading Australian and British arts practitioners of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, culturally and linguistically diverse and minority ethnic backgrounds.
Applications for INTERSECT will close 2nd July, 2018 at 23.59pm UK Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).
