Manly Arts Festival 2017

Each year, since 1994, arts and cultural organisations, our council, and local businesses, have joined forces to develop a creative and entertaining program of events for locals and visitors. 
Manly Arts Festival 2017.

Exhibitions and Public Programs

Join our artists, curators and collectors ‘in conversation’ sessions and gain a unique insight into current exhibitions. The MAG&M Society also offers special events including private viewings and professional development forums. There’s also music, spoken word, performance and film performances to enjoy as part of the major exhibitions.

Offsite Partnerships

At MAG&M we’re energetically engaged across the arts, government and community sector in delivering the cultural program. Recent partnerships include Eramboo Artist Environment, Sydney Harbour Federation TrustQ Station and Northern Sydney Institute Ceramics Brookvale.
