We are very fortunate in Maroondah to have such a high calibre of arts events and activities on our own doorstep.

Council prides itself on providing interesting, engaging and thought provoking offerings to our community across a range of artistic mediums.

Having the opportunity to work with members of the Maroondah Arts Advisory Committee over the past 18 months, I have seen first hand the passion and talent we have within our community.

At the moment, we have some of Australia’s most highly acclaimed artists in the R & M McGivern Prize exhibition. You can see the finalists on exhibition in Artspace at Realm and Maroondah Federation Estate Gallery until February 1.

In January the new season of events and activities from the 2020 Ringwood Arts Precinct Calendar kicks off, including a performances and activations.
