Uncover arts in the west

Due West: Immersive Arts Festival ran from 10 – 27 August 2017 and asked participants to immerse themselves in the spirit and arts-culture of the west.

As showcase of works from local artists, organisations and venues across multi-disciplinary art forms, Due West presented immersive arts experiences which allowed participants to interact, engage and participate.

With a hugely varied line up that truly represented our diverse local community, Due West: Immersive Arts Festival is a unique opportunity to experience Melbourne’s ever-changing inner west through a creative lens
