ART STARTS HERE
METRO ARTS ENSURES CONTEMPORARY ART IS BORN: TODAY, TOMORROW AND BEYOND!
Metro Arts enables thought-provoking and exhilarating art from current and future Australian artists. That is why our ethos is Art Starts Here: we support the artist every step of the way – from the early development of ideas through to presenting and touring work.
We know that when artists are properly supported, they have the resources to create powerful work that expands and shifts our hearts and minds. Investing in artists enables them to create, perform and present works that forge a new understanding and a new way forward.
At Metro Arts…
Our job is contemporary art; live and living art, challenging and experimental and diverse art. Work that starts conversations, builds communities, challenges thinking, and enriches lives. Work that spans borders and engages with urban and regional populations nationally and internationally.
Metro Arts believes in the capacity of arts and culture to connect and strengthen communities, to stimulate creative thinking and conversation. We advocate for the social and health benefits of regular arts and cultural experiences and the intrinsic value to our society. This is the driving vision behind Metro Arts as a cultural organisation and the art we present.
