Also featured are interviews with Mayu Kanamori on the Cowra Canowindra Art Project and with Cementa’s Alex Wisser on the Left Field Project.

Arts OutWest’s Prepare to Exchange and Australian Pavilion project of 2013 geared up a dozen creatives from the region to head to the Wirksworth Festival in Derbyshire UK. As AOW executive officer Tracey Callinan says in ‘Belonging’ :

This project aimed to build the skills, experience and portfolios of Central West NSW artists to prepare them for international exchange.

and

The benefits you get from international exchange are major. As an example, I have seen young artists that we took to the UK applying for other things and being taken seriously because of this experience. Regional artists should be getting better opportunities because whatever they learn, they bring back and put into their communities.

Digital copies of the book are available from the Regional Arts Australia website.
