Keep the arts alive at fortyfivedownstairs

fortyfivedownstairs is one of Melbourne’s most renowned and multi-faceted creative hubs

As an unfunded and not-for-profit organisation we support independent, experimental and thought-provoking art forms, striving to make money for artists – not from them.


fortyfivedownstairs acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land upon which we gather to share art and performance, and pay our respects to their Elders past, present and future. We recognise the strength, pride and expression of all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people
