Give more children access to the performing arts.

Arts Centre Melbourne is a place for children to ignite their imaginations and be filled with a sense of fun and wonder. Share the joy and discover hidden talents or learn brand new ones in enjoyable, practical workshops for children and their adult companions at The Channel, Arts Centre Melbourne.
