MoreArt Public Art Festival

MoreArt is our annual festival that celebrates art in public spaces across Merri-bek.

Moreland is home to one of the largest communities of artists and arts workers in the country. This exhibition of temporary public artworks is an opportunity to bring some of this extraordinary talent to visibility within the community.

MoreArt 2022

Moreland City Council’s public art festival, MoreArt, returns in 2022 with 'Evidence of Life: MoreArt 2022'. The festival welcomes us back to public spaces with three evolving exhibitions over six months.

Featuring works by local artists LAST Collective, Prue & Honey, and Joseph L Griffiths, MoreArt 2022 invites us to reset our relationship with public spaces after a turbulent two years, and reconnect with the community through art and performance.

All exhibits are FREE to visit.

You can learn more about MoreArt on our Conversations Merri-bek website.
