What? walk to art takes you to art. To street art, art in artist-run spaces, art in galleries, art in studios. All hidden in Melbourne.

Why? walk to art is about breaking barriers: the intimidation of walking into an art gallery or studio, and the fear of not knowing how to look at art, feel or describe it.

How? walk to art takes you behind the scenes to Melbourne's remarkable art community. It is an introduction to this world, so you do not need previous knowledge or a degree in fine arts to join the walking tour.

  • During a few hours, you will be chatting, socializing and learning from creators and art educators, always guided by an art consultant who has a passion for walking, food and culture.

  • At the end of the walking tour, you will receive a "starter pack" to help you continue on your journey of art discovery. It includes magazines, discounts for memberships and subscriptions at art-related venues, and postcards for upcoming exhibition openings. You can also subscribe to our newsletter, check our blog and stay with touch with Twitter and Facebook, and we will keep you posted on exhibitions, galleries and previews in Melbourne.

  • After hours of strolling, the group will stop for fabulous wine (along with cheese, depending on the tour you choose) and have an opportunity to discuss their ideas with the guide and other tour participants.

Where? The tour itinerary is always changing and the destinations (located in the Melbourne CBD and, depending on the tour you choose, inner city suburbs) are revealed on the day of the walk. You will be notified of the meeting place by post, email or telephone.
