VISIONS is an independent producing company led by Freya Waterson, practicing across the world from Naarm (Melbourne), Australia. Working across scale, context, form and genre to support some of Australia's most ambitious contemporary artists and companies to create new work, and helping guide projects from inception through to production and presentation.

Established in 2015, VISIONS provides a niche, agile and economical support structure for independent artists, as well as high level strategic market development, organisational and project support for small-medium companies, government and institutions. VISIONS is committed to investigating alternative models of working to facilitate sustainable pathways for independent artists by supporting them to create ambitious projects, and tour their work beyond Australia.

VISIONS has a strong focus on international engagement and Freya has facilitated the presentation of over 90 performance seasons in 22 countries. Freya is a sought after international marketplace advisor with expertise across Europe, Asia and North America. VISIONS’ work across scale, context and form has provided a platform to initiate research, collaborative investigations and advocate for idiosyncratic expressions of independent practice.
