Victoria – The Creative State

Indulge in Victoria’s abundant arts and culture scene in places and spaces right across the state. From theatre shows and live music to comedy clubs, museums, galleries, festivals and events, Victorians love to celebrate all things creative.

A state on show – See everything from contemporary works by Australian and international artists to classic pieces from another era in public and private galleries. Confident independent galleries and artist-run spaces can be found throughout the city and towns where you’ll find the low down on the country’s brightest new talents and uncover national treasures.

The streets and landscapes provide a living history of our story so far and connect past to present in museums, libraries and public buildings dotted across Victoria.

Head out day or night and enjoy live music and performing arts.
Get amongst it at a gig, comedy hour, or theatre show taking place in performance spaces, band rooms and theatres. Discover the next big thing at a local music venue, catch a made in Melbourne blockbuster before it goes on tour, or catch stage productions and concerts on regional stages.
