Metro Arts | July – December Program

Cautiously and carefully as a community we continue to rebuild and find our new way forward in this changed world. Our art and artists continue to push boundaries, take risks and offer provocations, entertainments and just some damn fine art!

Our July-December season presents more thought-provoking and exhilarating work from Australian artists across artforms. And we continue to offer people of all ages opportunities to dance, think, discuss, listen, collide, question and cross-pollinate here at Metro Arts.
