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.

The Substation is committed to the ongoing involvement of local communities in our planning and decision-making. Embodying this commitment is the Community Reference Group: a collective of local stakeholders brought together to facilitate community input, feedback and participation in The Substation’s program.

Chaired by our community ambassador Luke Isaacs, the Community Reference Group aims to grow and strengthen connections with local communities in Newport, Hobsons Bay and Melbourne’s greater west. The Community Reference Group works together to ensure the meaningful and continued involvement of local audiences, artists, not-for-profit organisations, schools and volunteers in The Substation’s operations.
