Footscray has gained a reputation for its thriving arts scene and large community of emerging, innovative artists.

You can get in on the action by crawling the six contemporary art galleries and public art installations, and spotting hidden street art and iconic large scale street murals.

For a more interactive experience, try your hand at blacksmithing at the Waterside Metal Art Studio; get bendy with the Women’s Circus; and fire your kids’ imagination at the literary centre, 100 Story Building.

Catch an unforgettable performance by the internationally renowned Snuff Puppets and visit Footscray’s home or arts, Footscray Community Arts Centre (FCAC), for exhibitions, theatre, workshops and performances.
