The performing arts can shape society and enrich our lives. They inspire us as individuals and help us build stronger, more connected communities.

Around the world, philanthropy has recognised that education, mental health, wellbeing and community cohesion thrive in societies with rich cultural and creative industries. Along with government and business, private individuals are also increasingly recognising the major role arts and culture play in delivering these benefits to society.

Arts Centre Melbourne brings people together for remarkable experiences.

Arts Centre Melbourne was built for all Victorians – a place where all of us can come together and experience all the performing arts has to offer. For nearly 40 years, we've showcased the best of Australian and international performing arts, proudly presenting, producing and delivering thousands of programs, performances and projects to entertain, educate and inspire generations.
