Contemporary Asian Australian Performance and Arts on Tour share a common goal: to enrich our regional stages with diverse stories and artists, engaging audiences, and communities alike. The Engage! Report and Toolkit, a collaboration between CAAP and AOT, distills insights from the 2022 Double Delicious tour into practical steps for touring presenters and venues across Australia.

Drawing from community engagement activities at The Art House Wyong, Bunjil Place, Merrigong Theatre Company and Wagga Wagga Civic Theatre, these resources explore everything from effective community engagement strategies to making foyers more welcoming. Dive into the 'Engage! Report' for real-world case studies and insights from our findings, then explore the 'Engage! Toolkit' for practical steps further reading to inspire continued action.

This initiative represents a significant shift towards meaningful connections with Culturally and Linguistically Diverse* communities and beyond. It's more than just filling seats—it's about creating lasting connections and welcoming spaces for all! Join us in making the performing arts landscape more inclusive and vibrant for everyone.
