Ms Lynette Wood, Acting High Commissioner to the United United Kingdom, writes in the foreword: “The Season is a timely recognition and celebration of the artistic excellence that epitomises the UK and Australia. The Season creates conditions for collaboration, bringing Australia’s best artists and creative organisations to the UK, and vice versa. The Season is an exciting opportunity to showcase the best of our arts and cultural life, and our successes in creative and technical innovation. The Season theme ‘Who Are We Now?’ showcases how both our great nations continue to evolve.”
The UK/Australia Season is a major new cultural exchange between Australia and the United Kingdom (UK) celebrating the diverse and innovative artist communities and cultural sectors of each nation. The Season is a joint initiative by the British Council and the Australian Government’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
The artistic programme ranges across theatre, film, visual arts, dance, design, creative technology, architecture, music, literature, museums, broadcast, public engagement, and features numerous exciting cross-arts commissions. There will be a number of world, UK and Australian premieres. The nationwide programme will span city, regional and rural areas across Australia and the UK.
