PAC Australia along with our project partners Regional Arts Australia and Performing Lines are thrilled to announce the launch of, the go-to platform to discover Local Giants artists, producers and their work.

Local Giants is a multi-project, multi-year program, providing a holistic, outcome-driven learning experience for producers, artists, and presenters.

The program supports regional practitioners by connecting artist residencies and producer training with creative development, the presentation of new work, and short-form touring. It enables regional performing arts centres to act as “cultural connectors” within their communities, and empowers them to explore new co-commissioning, co-producing, and investment models.

The Local Giants website features producer and artist profiles as well as 7 new works commissioned through the first iteration of the Local Giants program.

Local Giants was hailed a success with a Culture Counts evaluation reporting that 100% of participants would recommend the program to others and touring, new skills and supporting artists were the most popular reasons for participation.
