As part of the City of Melbourne, Arts House is one of Australia’s most exciting presenters of cutting-edge contemporary arts. Programs of performance, live art, installation and multidisciplinary work provide audiences and artists with a range of national and international offerings that nurture, support and stimulate Melbourne’s cultural life.
New voices are heard and supported with distinctive and compelling programs. Special events and festivals are presented in collaboration with venues across Melbourne: the Festival of Live Art (FOLA) and Australia’s only contemporary dance festival, Dance Massive. The CultureLAB program promotes creative development and encourages risk and innovation. It is a prolific incubator for both emerging, and established, artistic creators.
