At Arts Centre Melbourne, we bring people together for remarkable experiences.
The land on which the Melbourne Arts Precinct and Arts Centre Melbourne sit has long been a place of gathering, storytelling, song, ceremony, celebration and commemoration for First Nations people.
The People of the Kulin Nations have gathered on the site for thousands of years and continue to do so today. We pay our respects to their elders, past, present and future.
Sitting beneath our iconic Spire, we're Australia's largest and busiest performing arts centre.
Each year we stage more than 4,000 performances and public events and welcome over 3 million people through our doors.
In fact, as a cultural and architectural landmark in our nation's cultural capital, we've showcased the best of Australian and international performing arts for over 30 years.
We're proudly the home of our flagship Resident Companies — The Australian Ballet, Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Melbourne Theatre Company and Opera Australia — and a range of other presenters who collectively bring our stages and spaces to life.
Together with our own program of performances, events and activities, we offer a diversity of audiences a distinctly multidimensional approach to participation, education and entertainment.
On our world-renowned stages, in communities across Victoria, online, via mobile and through digital and outreach programming, our connection to individuals, families and communities traverses generations, and transcends cultural and geographical divides.
Everyone is welcome, and we devise programs and projects to enable our visitors and audiences to experience the arts, both as spectator and creator. Our commitment to participation and education are central to what we do, enabling us to inspire a new generation of creatives and makers.
The Victorian Government's vision for Melbourne is to advance its position as an internationally recognised cultural and creative destination, as well as retaining its crown of being the world's most liveable city. As one of Melbourne's major cultural centres, sitting at both the gateway and heart of the burgeoning Melbourne Arts Precinct, Arts Centre Melbourne is committed to realising this vision.
Join us in sharing a remarkable experience.
