Our Spirit

The beating heart of Victorian show business

Our Home

The home to a diverse array of performing arts groups and artists.

What we focus on

The arts provide a strong identity and shared a sense of pride in being part of a community. In its creative nature, we can turn any dream into a reality, preserve our history and strengthen our culture to form a solid foundation for future generations.

  • Stories – finding and recording the narrative
  • Talent – the support and development
  • Programming – the creation of ART

The How

The programming fund provides risk relief and other support to the groups and individuals creating within our focus areas.
The funding provides opportunities to share stories, in turn creating an ecosystem ripple effect that brings enjoyment to our community, drives customers to local businesses, and enlivens our local City of Port Phillip through Arts, Events & Entertainment.

Vass Theatre Group


Vass Productions has established a reputation for producing and co-producing high quality content for stage and screen. Aleksandar Vass OAM leads a dedicated team of people who live to develop life moving moments.

Facility Management

The Alex Theatre project was set up to create a model for compact boutique commercial performance spaces that would not only act as hubs in communities for the Arts but innovative spaces to develop ‘Off Broadway’ productions and innovation in the Arts.

Research & Innovation

The people behind the Red Brick Wall Project believe that through collaboration we can change the world. The Alex Theatre in the City of Port Phillip is a creative centre of excellence in innovation and technology.


Developing an education ecosystem to support the growth of knowledge within the Arts outside of the standard structure of the institutional approach for Stage and Screen.

Community Engagement

Developed as a way of engaging with artists, performers and writers, presenters, and production staff impacted by the COVID-19 lockdowns and providing them with employment opportunities and an online channel to express themselves and reach audiences.
