Imagining Transnational Cultural Policy
This article explores the potential offered by the internet for a transnational cultural policy in the context of the development of a national cultural policy in Australia in the period 2010 to 2013. An examination of submissions made to the National Cultural Policy Review by arts and cultural organisations reveals that only a small number of organisations thought transnationally. This, we suggest, resulted from a form of 'methodological nationalism': a framework for the review that encouraged an emphasis on the production of a national culture. In this context, it is significant that a number of organisations did imagine policy frameworks that exceeded national boundaries. Of particular interest is the way in which regional communities look beyond the nation's cultural centres and engage internationally.
