Arts in Victoria
Imaging Part 1 (2013)
Elyse de Valle
From the 150 year old history of our major cultural institutions to the work that's being created right now by emerging artists, there are plenty of reasons why Victoria is considered Australia's arts capital.
Victoria's arts 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 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 the Arts in Victoria.
Our feature stories highlight just a small fraction of the amazing things happening in Victorian arts and Culture - artist profiles, videos and heaps more.
Our listings section is an ongoing effort to link out to all of the amazing organisations and festivals around the state.
