This program of cultural events aims to reflect the goals of the University: excellence, inclusivity and enterprise by embracing both our internal and external communities.

We have developed industry partnerships with an array of performing arts organisations both Australian and international that will see the development of many important new works and initiatives over the next few years: the first fruits of those partnerships can be seen in 2018 in the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra’s Metropolis New Music Festival , the residency of Belarus Free Theatre, and in the world premiere of Spinifex Gum, a co-commission with the Adelaide and Sydney Festivals.

There is so much to discover and enjoy here, new dance for children from Queensland’s Dancenorth, beautifully made theatre from Adelaide’s Slingsby, hard-hitting, contemporary work from La Boite Theatre, Tasmania Performs and Melbourne’s Lab Kelpie. Following on the success of 2017’s Jazz Greats Weekend this year will see stars Megan Washington, Vince Jones, Joe Camilleri and Vika Bull in all-new projects. The rich performing life of our students will be on display in concerts by the brilliant Monash Academy Orchestra, and in the world premiere of the musical The Dressmaker, made possible by the Pratt Foundation.
