What's it all about?

One Night in Footscray was established in 2017 with huge success, so we’re doing it again! This event provides an exciting new way to discover the art spaces, galleries and venues within central Footscray. It is designed as a self-guided twilight journey where audiences and participants can view and engage in a variety of high-quality art experiences, across different mediums, and unexpected locations, all on one night. One Night in Footscray is a Footscray University Town initiative supported by Victoria University and Maribyrnong City Council.

The event aims to:

  • encourage journeys through central Footscray and its creative spaces
  • highlight the work of local arts and makers
  • support emerging practitioners and students, creating a platform to showcase their work
  • promote and encourage audiences and artists to see, experience and interpret Footscray, its people and places.
