The International program supports Victorian artists and arts organisations to build their international profile, networks and employment opportunities through export, touring and cultural exchange activity.
The International program aims to:

In addition to the two application-based, competitive funding categories, the International Program supports a range of targeted initiatives that increase export opportunities for Victorian artists and raise the State's profile as an international cultural centre.
These strategic opportunities are identified by Arts Victoria and range from enabling the participation of Victorian artists in major international arts markets, to supporting the Melbourne Art Fair and creating promotional tools like the Export Guide to the Performing Arts in Victoria.
