fortyfivedownstairs Drive to Survive

Since 2002, fortyfivedownstairs has presented independent, experimental and challenging art forms.

fortyfivedownstairs has enriched Melbourne’s cultural reputation by providing a multifaceted program of exhibitions, performance and debate in the CBD. We have provided a platform for thousands of emerging and mid-career artists to develop and show their work, to take risks, sustain their careers and connect with audiences. Our contribution to Melbourne’s cultural life is immense and necessary. This is why we’re determined to re-open our doors when the time comes!

Thanks to the generous support of our staff, board and landlords, fortyfivedownstairs has a plan to see us through the next six months. To survive beyond that, we are relying on your support.
