> About Write Angle


Write Angle, a full-service exhibition tour agency, was formed in Melbourne in 1992 and has affiliates in the UK, USA and New Zealand. We have a proven track record touring national and international multi-media exhibitions with links to popular culture, and have been particularly successful in increasing museum attendance and attracting a new, younger audience to major museums and venues in Australia and New Zealand.

Write Angle's strong strategic relationships with venues, service providers, artists and performers, and our ability to enrol compatible stakeholders, garner major media and public support allow us to uniquely enhance every exhibition. Our services draw from a broad base of skill resources allowing Write Angle to create the ideal team, with the right mix of personnel, expertise, services and resources to maximise the impact of each exhibition.

  • Venue sourcing and liaison
  • Full project management (budgets, logistics, shipping, installation, customs clearance)
