City of Melbourne
“To be a creative city, Melbourne must draw in ‘ideas people’ who will share and learn and teach – not ‘push them out’ financially. We must work together to ensure artists can afford to live and work in the Municipality, as well as access space to create and exhibit. Artists contribute to Melbourne’s vibrancy, and their presence enriches all of our lives”. Future Melbourne: Creative City.
