Melbourne International Arts Festival, Creative Victoria, Public Transport Victoria and Yarra Trams are happy to announce the seventh year of the Melbourne Art Trams project, and Expressions of Interest are now open.

Melbourne is one of the world’s truly connected and democratic cities, proud of the access, equality, diversity and freedoms that make a world city great. Nowhere is this seen more clearly than in two of our iconic entities: the tram network and our annual international arts festival: open to all, welcoming to everyone, moving through all parts of our city and genuinely connecting.

We are inviting artists to respond to Melbourne as a truly welcoming and borderless city. A work that is specific to Melbourne’s trams as a site for collective engagement throughout the city.

One tram will be designated the Community Tram. For this category, artists and community groups are invited to present a design which reflects their understanding of community: be it a community they belong to, work of live in, their school, or any other interpretation.
