Australia-Japan Year of Exchange Official Website for Performing Arts Programs
 2006 is a special year of exchange between Japan and Australia that aims to build mutual understanding through a wide range of events and programs in the fields of culture, arts, tourism, education, science and technology, intellectual exchange and sports.
In the performing arts, an office has been established with the purpose of actively seeking out performances or joint productions of theater or concerts on the theme of Australia or Australians under the title "Dramatic Australia." Now a bilingual website is being launched listing performing arts performances, workshops and the like which are worthy of association with this exchange year. On the site are listed programs that will be held in September and October around the country.
