Radbourne discusses a 2001 research project in Australia on the crisis faced by its regions. The study shows that even though the regions experienced decrease in services in many areas, regional arts activity is continuing, which affects economic and social factors such as employment, community participation, and education. Based on the study, she argues that the arts foster regional sustainability, and proposes that a collective arts leadership associated with vision and creativity is needed for arts to achieve it.
