Arts in Maroondah
The arts are high on the agenda for making Maroondah a great place to live and work.
Opportunities for attending and participating in the arts range from leading contemporary visual art exhibitions, programs and activities at the ArtSpace at Realm and the Maroondah Access Gallery and accessible art and lifestyle classes and workshops at Wyreena Community Arts Centre. There's also an exciting range of local and touring theatre and music performances at Karralyka Theatre.
The arts are an important part of everyday life in Maroondah. From the Maroondah Art Trail in cafes dotted throughout the city, to engaging public art in our parks and facilities, they are central to the quality of life in our City.
To find out more about Council's commitment to supporting the arts in Maroondah, see our Arts and Cultural Development Strategy 2014-2018 or contact a member of the Arts and Cultural Development team on 9298 4545.
