For over 20 years Asialink has been at the forefront of leadership, research, advocacy and program delivery in Australia-Asia engagement. In order to embrace the exciting possibilities of the rapidly developing region, Asialink has identified the need for Australia to develop deeper and more sustained modes of engagement, and enhance the Asia-capability of people and organisations across all sectors.
To do this effectively requires good quality information and data. This is available for many industries, but lacking in the cultural sector. To redress this ‘data deficit’, Asialink Arts, with the support of Arts Victoria, developed The Victoria-Asia Cultural Engagement Research Report. The objective was to gather data, evidence of best practice strategies and identify the needs of key stakeholders, artists and arts organisations. The wealth of resulting information may be used to guide the development of policies and strategies to further develop Asia engagement and capability of the next five years.
