This book challenges the metropolitan focus of much scholarship regarding regional arts, along with the assumption that creative practice in the the regions is necessarily a pale reflection of the cities. Instead, we argue that patterns of creative practice in regional communities are sustainable and innovative in distinct ways. This book's contributors use the Australian example to suggest ways to re-imagine how regionalism might be constituted in the Global North, and explore new ways in which creative arts can strengthen and refashion inclusive communities.
