In October, the Adelaide Festival Centre hosted its Arts Leadership Program, a fully-funded, four-day intensive for arts workers from across the Asia Pacific region, including Hong Kong, Singapore and the Philippines. Coinciding with the OzAsia festival, the program saw 17 participants selected from a pool of 80 applications taking part.

Developed in partnership with Flinders University and the Leaders Institute of South Australia, the Arts Leadership Program evaluated the present state of leadership in the arts, as well as looked to provide personalised leadership tools and arts knowledge for the future.
