City of Hobsons Bay

Art & Industry Festival - Online and in the West!

The Art & Industry Festival 2020 features stories, songs, film and fashion inspired by Melbourne’s West.

Over ten days we offer you an explosion of colour and new ideas after a winter of creative hibernation. Never before has the Art & Industry by-line of ‘celebrating our past, designing our future’ been more relevant as we find ways to safely make art, do business, create and connect.

The Art & Industry Festival celebrates the ever-changing industrial and manufacturing heartland of Melbourne’s western suburbs. Industry as a theme creates a lens through which we can view the past and generate ideas on how we can design the future.

The Festival profiles local creators and resources in Hobsons Bay, home to boat builders, glass makers, designers, oil tanks and treasured heritage buildings.

Come discover our industrial inspired projects from the heart of Hobsons Bay and for the first time, ‘Online and in the West’!

20 - 29 NOVEMBER 2020
