Welcome to the 2017 Manly Arts Festival. This year we’re coming together to celebrate 24 years of the Festival and the magic of creativity in Manly and beyond. A broad range of exciting events featuring prominent musicians, visual artists and dance performers in a host of different venues from creative studios to Manly Art Gallery & Museum and the Warringah Creative Space will ignite the region.

Since 1994 the Manly Arts Festival has grown into one of the State’s leading community-based arts festivals. Each year, arts and cultural organisations in the region and Council, supported by local businesses, join forces to develop a creative and entertaining program of events for residents and visitors.

Northern Beaches Council is committed to supporting cultural programs in this 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 2017 Manly Arts Festival a truly marvellous event. Immerse yourself in the Manly Arts Festival and, as always, be inspired by the creativity around us.
