Celebrating our Unique Asian Australian Identity
For over 17 days and in 14 venues, Mapping Melbourne will come alive with a series of intercultural, multi-art form events which will take place smack-bang in the heart of Melbourne.

Now in it's fifth year, this festival comprises both emerging and established performance, visual and musical artists, who gather to share and celebrate our unique Asian Australian identity and highlight positive global creative connections.
