Manly Arts Festival 2015

18 - 27 September 2015  

WELCOMEManly Arts Festival 2015

This year we’re coming together to celebrate 22 years of the Festival and the magic of creativity in Manly. A broad range of exciting events featuring prominent musicians, emerging visual artists and dance performers in a host of different venues from creative studios to our own Manly Art Gallery & Museum will ignite Manly.

Since 1994 the Manly Arts Festival has grown into one of the State’s leading community-based arts festivals.

Each year, Manly’s arts and cultural organisations and Manly Council, supported by local businesses, join forces to develop a creative and entertaining program of events for residents and visitors.

Manly Council is committed to supporting cultural programs in the Manly area and to the creation of opportunities for genuine participation in the creative arts. This year you’ll find lots to see, hear and participate in, with a range of creative learning opportunities to explore and enjoy.

Congratulations to everyone involved in helping to make the 2015 Manly Arts Festival a truly marvellous event. Immerse yourself in the Manly Arts Festival and, as always, be inspired by the creativity around us.

Jean Hay AM
Mayor of Manly
Chair, Manly Arts Festival Working Group
