Abstract/Summary This Fellowship enabled Fiona Hillary to examine current international trends in public art practice, management and curation, focusing on models of collaborative practice and mechanisms of cultural dialogue and knowledge exchange in the online environment. The Fellow undertook a series of interviews and site visits and attended conferences in the United Kingdom and New Zealand, all of which provided the framework for the research. Exposure to a range of exhibitions and public works enriched the research experience. Additional visits to China and Japan extended the Fellow's knowledge. The research revealed a dynamic and potent culture of public art practice and dialogue internationally. International engagement allowed the Fellow exposure to the diverse practices and voices in the field and the critical nature of that diversity. The International experience shifted the Fellow's understanding of what is required to create effective scaffolding for emerging public art practitioners from a singular online platform to a diverse range of opportunities for engagement.
