Arts and Culture


The City of Yarra is the home of diverse and vibrant arts, cultures and communities. Yarra City Arts’ vision is for our city to be a creative place where dynamic, diverse, vibrant arts activities thrive and our citizens enjoy arts and culture as an everyday experience.

Through you can explore:

  • a diverse calendar of events supported by Yarra City Arts including festivals, exhibitions, theatrical works and musical performances
  • information about the venues available for hire from the City of Yarra, suitable for everything from small group meetings to major functions and events
  • an online gallery of selected contemporary, heritage and public artwork from the City of Yarra’s collection
  • useful resources for artists and community groups including grant information

The City of Yarra Arts and Cultural Strategy 2011–2015 sets out a strategic framework that guides Council action to sustain the municipality’s cultural vibrancy.

Yarra has a high percentage of residents who are creative artists, musicians and performers. It is our aim to make arts and culture in Yarra easier to practice and easier to participate in.

Yarra City Arts is supporting the activities of our artists through Room to Create, a new program that is working to ensure that our creative communities have places to practice and develop their art within the city.

There are many ways to enjoy arts and culture in Yarra as part of daily life. We encourage you to try them all.
