The exhibition will represent Melbourne as a dynamic centre for the production of, debate about, and participation in contemporary art, architecture, design and performance - innovative creative practice in all its forms. Melbourne Now will encompass an ambitious program with well over 120 artists and projects as well as architectural and design projects and commissions, commissions for kids and families and a community hall, which will host a rotating program, encouraging community expression from choirs, workshops, multicultural groups, performance artists, cake decorators, philosophers and poets, among many other activities, public programs and events.
