Situated in Albert Park, Gasworks is just three kilometres from the CBD and the precinct houses four hectares of park, two theatres, three gallery spaces, a café, as well as function and workshop spaces. Gasworks has 14 resident visual artists and a small but dedicated staff work to present an annual program of festivals and events including seasons with some of Melbourne’s biggest arts festivals, farmers’ markets, classes and workshops, creative and professional development opportunities for artists, children’s programming and more. In addition, over 70 performing arts events and 40 visual arts exhibitions are presented in the venue each year. Gasworks’ diverse audiences include the local communities in the City of Port Philip.
