Art Press Release from Australia. Published by anonymous on Monday 21 October 2013.

The Chair for Experimenta Media Arts, Nick Miller, along with the Experimenta Media Arts organisation are the Victorian winner for the 2013 Creative Partnerships Australia Awards, having won the Woodside Better Business Award!

Outstanding relationships between business, arts and donors were honoured and celebrated at the Creative Partnerships Australia Awards in Victoria, held at Hamer Hall in the Arts Centre Melbourne.

The 2013 Awards recognise the very best relationships between the private sector – both business and philanthropic – and the arts.

“We’ve been very impressed with the high standard of entries and the range of initiatives nominated this year,” said Fiona Menzies, CEO, Creative Partnerships Australia.
“The Awards continue to demonstrate that innovative and creative partnerships between the cultural and private sectors are thriving across the country; reaffirming the value these partnerships bring to the organisations and the broader community.”

Creative Partnerships Australia was established this year under Creative Australia, the Australian Government’s national cultural policy, to encourage and facilitate private sector support for the arts. Creative Partnerships works with the arts, business and philanthropic sectors, as well as government, to support sustainable creative industries in Australia.

There were winners announced across eight categories including partnering, volunteering, access and philanthropy, all of which support the creation and sustainability of cultural activities for the enjoyment of all Australians.

The winners of the Awards at state level will go on to represent Victoria at the 2013 Creative Partnerships Australia National Awards being held in The Great Hall, Parliament House in Canberra on 18 November 2013.
