Triangle was set up in 1982 as an artists' workshop, bringing local and international artists together. Over 25 years, Triangle has developed into a worldwide network of artists and projects, including artist-led workshops and independent organisations in over 20 countries. Each Triangle initiative is independent and responds to local needs, connecting with audiences through varied projects. Separate artist-led organisations sharing similar values and approaches have also partnered with Triangle for international exchange projects. The present publication aims to capture and communicate the experience of many of the artists and event co-ordinators who have contributed to developing this network; and to inspire artists to take some of these ideas further. Case studies of select projects from around the world as well as a directory of associated organisations are included.
