Arts Gen

Arts Gen is a space for learning, sharing and artmaking based at Footscray Community Arts Centre in Melbourne’s inner west.

Through socially engaged creative practice, we promote self-representation and platforms that support the creative potential of communities from Melbourne’s West and North.

Our work aims to address the social and cultural determinants of health, including ongoing colonisation, racism and other forms of structural discrimination have direct negative impacts on wellbeing.

We believe that when communities have the power and access to the arts, to develop and determine health and wellbeing initiatives, it leads to truly representative culture making.

Arts Gen is proudly supported by cohealth.
