Arts and Creativity

For all arts events, programs, festivals and public art presented by the City of Darebin. Visit the Darebin Arts website for more details.


We love great art and support artists by regularly acquiring new artworks to display across the City and in our public spaces.


We host a number of exhibitions to showcase local artists and support emerging artists. Come along and view some inspiring work!

Music and Film

Darebin is a hub for musicians and fans alike; we run an annual festival called Music Feast; and we support musicians at Decibels Studio and in our FReeZA youth programs.


Theatre performances are held year round at Darebin Arts & Entertainment Centre and Northcote Town Hall, from Speakeasy to our Loudmouth program designed to entertain kids.


nScribe is our arts and literary journal for local writers and readers; while the Mayor's Writers Award encourages entrants from across the City to express themselves in written form.
