This paper compares the Victorian Cultural Network (VCN) experience with research on cross-domain collaborations and analyses the application of collaboration across key VCN outputs, including: establishment of a broadband fiber network linking the five Member organizations; creation of the Culture Victoria website (; and development of targeted education content and IP standards.
