“I am thrilled and honoured to be an Ambassador for the UK/Australia Season.
Art breaks down the borders and boundaries of our imagination, poses questions, expands reality, and by sharpening our feelings into ideas offers pathways to insight.
Living works of art in performance being shared cross culturally provides a genuine opportunity for audiences and artists alike to expand their horizons at a time when many fear they are closing down.
I am excited that this Season will facilitate a cornucopia of visions which speak to the depth and breadth of the ongoing artistic exploration in contemporary Australia and Britain.” — Cate Blanchett, AC
