Melbourne Festival

The 2010 Melbourne International Arts Festival presents a visual arts program the likes and magnitude of which is rarely undertaken in Melbourne. Combining ambitious new projects by local and international artists, significant group exhibitions, and recent historical work to present a wider context, the 2010 Visual Arts program is spectacular in its scale and specificity.

Each Festival brings an unparalleled feast of dance, theatre, music, visual arts, multimedia and outdoor events from renowned and upcoming Australian and International companies and artists to Melbourne.

Melbourne Festival is a key destination festival within Australia’s cultural calendar, ensuring interstate and international visitation by exclusively debuting and premiering some of the finest national and international artists and companies, and by ensuring that the only place in Australia that many of the key festival projects are seen is in Melbourne.

Melbourne Festival is quintessentially Melbourne’s festival – physically by reaching out into the topography and geography of the city itself, artistically by presenting Melbourne’s finest artists in new works and international collaborations, and demographically by engaging with as many people of Melbourne as possible, giving them ownership of their annual international festival.

Through excellence, diversity and accessibility, Melbourne Festival presents the best possible artistic experience to as many people as possible. It proudly offers a wide variety of venues and ticket prices, plus many free events.

The Artistic Director for the 2010 and 2011 Festivals is Brett Sheehy.

The 2010 Melbourne International Arts Festival will take place between 8 – 23 October.
