About One Night in Footscray

‘One Night in Footscray’ is an exciting way to discover the art spaces, galleries, venues and inherent creativity of the Maribyrnong municipality within central Footscray. It is designed as a self-guided twilight journey, where visitors can view and engage in a variety of high-quality creative and artistic experiences, across different mediums and in unexpected locations – all on one night!

The event aims to:

  • encourage journeys through central Footscray and its creative spaces
  • highlight the work of local artists and makers
  • support emerging practitioners and students
  • create new opportunities to engage with art in public spaces
  • promote and encourage audiences and artists to see, experience and interpret Footscray, its people and places.

One Night in Footscray is a Footscray University Town initiative, delivered in partnership between Maribyrnong City Council and Victoria University.

The One Night in Footscray Coordination Committee, comprising member of Victoria University, Maribyrnong City Council and local organisations, is inviting artists who have a connection to the city of Maribyrnong (through living, working, recreating, studying or volunteering) to apply for an artist’s grant. The grant will help you to exhibit or perform your work in galleries, shop fronts, venues and on the streets of central Footscray as part of this exciting program. This is an opportunity to be creative and experimental. Live music, roving entertainment and shopfront-window presentations are encouraged.
