One Night in Footscray


Spend One Night in Footscray and discover the art spaces, galleries, venues and hidden in-between spaces. Experience Footscray after dark. Roving performers, live music, DJ’s, kids’ activities, gallery exhibitions, an artist market and participatory art installations will all come out to play under the stars in this free program open to people of all ages.

The event aims to:

Some highlights of the night include a pop up dance floor; Heather Horrocks’ piece TIME OUT will comment on two public art pieces in central Footscray; Larissa MacFarlane’s Disability Pride will bring together some of Melbourne’s best known disability activists with local community, for a live and collaborative paste up; and Trocadero Art Space will present an evening of exhibitions and performances specifically commissioned for One Night in Footscray.
