In late 2019 Director of Asialink Arts, Dr Pippa Dickson led a delegation of five creative industries practitioners and festival producers from across Australia to introduce, internationalise and develop audiences and markets within the dynamic context of the Indian creative industries. It was a fast-paced trip making the most of every opportunity to engage with individuals, not for profit foundations and government institutions.
James Boyce of creative group Grumpy Sailor came away from the experience with a vision for more reciprocal exchange between countries:
"We want to be able to create a bridge between Australia and India.. it's about creating something that goes both ways."
