Partnerships and collaborations are critically important to our delivery. Without that, I don’t believe we’d be able to achieve what it is we need to achieve. Plus also the members of the Kultour network, those arts organisations work on the ground in their location … Working with our member organisations enables us to still have that connection and engagement with them, and opportunities to support them and hear what works [and] what doesn’t work; to enable us to undertake advocacy; to help improve opportunities and conditions, and existing frameworks that support the creation and presentation of work. We could not do it without our partners; without our members. In fact, part of this transition is to rebuild that even more strongly.
