Gasworks Arts Tour
EXPERIENCE ART BEHIND THE SCENES
Go behind the scenes and meet our talented artists and craftspeople that makes Gasworks Arts Park the premier arts precinct in the City of Port Phillip. Take a tour of our heritage multi-arts venue and park, coordinated by Visual Arts Manager Tracey McIrvine. Set in beautiful surrounds and buildings that were once the industrial gasworks site for the former South Melbourne gas plant, the site tells a fascinating story of how a busy arts precinct was developed from the remains of a once hissing, smoking (and even explosive) factory site. Tours include visits to our resident artists’ studio spaces, current visual arts exhibitions and public art works in the park. Tours can be tailored to the special interests and requirements of your group.
Purchase opportunities for ceramics and jewellery direct from the artists will also be available.
