fortyfivedownstairs is a Melbourne based
not-for-profit theatre and gallery

showcasing independent visual art, theatre and music

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 Boon Wurrung and Wurundjeri People of the Kulin Nation as the Traditional Custodians of the land upon which we gather to share art and performance, and we pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
