Who’s Coming

Transmedia Victoria enables artists from a variety of sectors to come together and share their experiences in working across artforms. The diversity of artistic sectors involved provides an unprecedented opportunity for cross-fertilisation and forging new partnerships. There will also be decision-makers in the room, to ensure that everyone is on the same page.
