Departing from Melbourne, Australia, Return Flight is an international collaborative project, a cultural exchange opportunity and a multidisciplinary arts platform for emerging and established artists and writers.
The project gives Melbourne contributors an opportunity to engage with practitioners outside their field and with international audiences. At the same time international contributors are introduced to the Melbourne audience, thereby further enriching the diverse tapestry of this city’s cultural program and the individual practices of all creative contributors involved.
In 2017, Return Flight will launched its inaugural program with the collaboration between Melbourne and Edinburgh, Scotland. The program includes five artists from each city creating new work for the project, then five writers from the opposite city creating written response works to a single artwork each.
