The Writers Immersion Cultural Exchange (WrICE) program is a partnership
led by RMIT University with the generous support of Copyright Agency.
Copyright Agency is a not for profit rights management organisation which
provides opportunities for established and developing writers and artists
to learn and develop their work, and for the public to share in their
discoveries. Its charter is to enable the use of text and images in return for
fair payment to writers, visual artists and publishers.
Copyright Agency allocates a percentage of its income through its
Cultural Fund to develop projects that will support the Australian publishing
and writing industry. The Cultural Fund supports a wide variety of these projects
which aim to encourage and provide practical assistance to assist Copyright Agency’s
members and the Australian cultural community.
RMIT University is very proud to have the support of Copyright Agency with this
innovative project. RMIT University has enjoyed the generous support of Copyright Agency
in delivering two other highly successful programs: Writers-in-Residence
2009–2012 and StoriesNOW 2012–2013.

non/fictionLab provides an innovative experimental hub for creative arts research in the key fields of creative writing, nonfiction poetry, interactive documentary, and media production. Based in the School of Media and Communication at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia, nonfictionLab brings together critical practitioners in creative arts, design and humanities.
non/fictionLab is a research centre that critically explores and articulates the value of creative work as a playful vessel for the imagination. This thinking through making can show us who we are and how we are implicated in the lives of others. We build and support laboratories of practice around matters of social, political, cultural and environmental concern. We work in partnership with fellow scholars, writers and artists, and with industries and communities, local and international.
