Arts West: Collaboration in Practice explores the formation of Arts West, the alliance’s structure and processes, and how collaboration is sustained.

The guide reveals insights from the past 5 years of formal collaboration between Arts West member organisations: 100 Story Building, cohealth Arts Generator, Footscray Community Arts Centre, Snuff Puppets, The SUBSTATION, Western Edge Youth Arts and Women’s Circus. It contains key learnings for organisations wishing to undertake a similar project, with links to resources that will assist in establishing collaborative projects. It also demonstrates to potential funders of similar projects the experimental nature of the collaborative process, and the appetite for risk and trust that is required of partners.
