different venues from creative studios to pop-up galleries and our own

Since 1994 the Manly Arts Festival has grown into one of the State’s
leading community-based arts festivals. Each year, Manly’s arts and
cultural organisations and Manly Council, with the support of local
businesses, join forces to develop a creative and entertaining program
of events for residents and visitors.
Manly Council is committed to supporting cultural programs in the Manly
area and helps create opportunities for genuine participation in the
creative arts. This year you’ll find not only lots to see and hear, but
lots to be an active part of, with a range of creative learning
opportunities to explore and enjoy.
The strength of the Festival lies in its diversity, with a range of art
exhibitions, music, workshops, kids’ events, performance, street and
literary events both indoors and outdoors, day and night. Wonderful new
projects have been developed, including major exhibition highlights and
special events. Congratulations to everyone involved in helping make
the 2012 Manly Arts Festival a truly marvellous event.
