Through creativity we learn about ourselves; exploring what we feel, value and believe.

Victoria's creative scene is characterised by diversity, excellence, innovation and a propensity to mix things up.

We are home to the oldest orchestra in the country, the longest running professional theatre company and the national ballet company and school. We are also home to one of the top three comedy festivals in the world, strong independent theatre, film and contemporary music scenes and a creative underbelly of artist-run spaces and initiatives.

From the grand to the grungy, indoor and out, we invite you to explore creativity in Victoria.
