  • promote broad access to Australian cultural material through touring works from the collections of the National collecting institutions, with particular emphasis on providing access for audiences in regional areas
  • promote international awareness of Australia's cultural heritage through touring Australian cultural material from National collecting institutions overseas
  • expand Australian appreciation of international cultural material through enabling National collecting institutions to bring works from international collections for exhibition or touring within Australia, and
