Come and Play - All of May events

In May Gippsland comes alive with artistic endeavours during the ‘Come and Play - All of May’ celebration of the Arts of Gippsland.

This celebration shines the spotlight on our creative communities and is spread across six different Gippsland regions. It features a dazzling array of performances and exhibitions designed to take you on a voyage of discovery.

Another key part of ‘Come and Play’ is the Artist In Community program in six towns across Gippsland.  The successful towns and the artists paired with these towns in 2018 and can be read about here.

This May, come on a creative voyage of discovery and revel in the hidden talents and treasures on your doorstep.
