Beyond Bread and Circus in 2008 celebrates the dissolution of boundaries between high, low, fringe, mainstream and popular culture. These divisions are irretrievably blurred and increasingly irrelevant in Arts House’ current presentation program. Arts House seeks to create a new form of 21st century arts presentation where partnership, dialogue and collaboration is the norm.
Arts House develops, produces and presents dynamic cultural experiences which enable people to make meaningful connections on a local, national and international level.
Presented across two sites, Arts House, North Melbourne Town Hall and Arts House, Meat Market, the Arts House program values arts and culture that can help create a world where people are actively engaged, aware and willing to participate, politically and culturally, to make change.
