Dr Tony Moore and Associate Professor Mark Gibson, from Monash’s Communications and Media Studies program, have published a refereed article to introduce their ARC project, Fringe to Famous: Contemporary Australian Culture as an Innovation System.
The article, “Fringe to Famous: bohemians, entrepreneurs, audiences and the enabling state”, was published in the Asia Pacific Journal of Arts and Cultural Management in December.

The ARC project team includes Dr Moore and Associate Professor Gibson, and Dr Chris McAuliffe from The University of Melbourne.
The project examines the crossover between ‘alternative’ and ‘mainstream’ cultural production in Australia, identifying ways in which a hybridisation between the avant garde and the popular promotes the development of cultural industries.
It will conduct a detailed study of five cases: comedy (Working Dog and the Chaser), music (Mental as Anything, Paul Kelly and Nick Cave), visual arts/graphic design (Mambo Graphics), short film (Tropfest) and games development (Freeplay).
