One Night in Footscray


One Night in Footscray is an annual event and is an exciting way to discover the art spaces, galleries, venues and inherent creativity of the Maribyrnong municipality within central Footscray.

It is designed as a self-guided twilight journey, where visitors can view and engage in a variety of high-quality creative and artistic experiences, across different mediums and in unexpected locations – all on one night!

The event aims to:

  • encourage journeys through central Footscray and its creative spaces
  • position Footscray as a creative centre
  • highlight and showcase the work of local artists and makers
  • create new opportunities to engage with art in public spaces
  • grow the audiences of each participating venue, and encourage cross-fertilisation of those audiences
  • support emerging practitioners and students, creating a platform for them to showcase their work
  • promote and encourage audiences and artists to see, experience and interpret Footscray, its people and places.
