The Substation

The Substation


Every dollar donated to The Substation supports the independent artists, organisations and community groups we collaborate with now and into the future. We thank our generous donors for helping us to continue championing contemporary and experimental arts, and for contributing to our ongoing commitment to equitable and inclusive programming.

The Substation champions contemporary and experimental arts. Housed inside a former industrial building steeped in the rich history of Melbourne’s inner west, The Substation is an arts destination unlike any other in Australia. From our local community in Newport to our national and global network of collaborators and cultural partners, we celebrate artists and ideas that encourage transformative conversations between wide-ranging audiences. Through our ever-evolving program and artist-led initiatives, we support the development of ambitious and inclusive works that defy simple categorisation.

We deeply appreciate your contributions and support.
