Art & Industry Festival
18-27 November 2016
The western suburbs of Melbourne are recognised as the industrial heartland of Australia. The Art & Industry Festival celebrates and investigates this area, which is in the process of change.
Over 10 days, the Art & Industry Festival will celebrate and investigate the ever-changing industrial and manufacturing heartland of Australia based in Melbourne's western suburbs. This inspiring new festival puts a spotlight on the local industrial creators and resources in the Hobsons Bay area that is home to craft brewers, carmakers, designers, oil tanks and treasured heritage buildings. Culminating in multiple art presentations and activities, the festival includes custom-made fashion inspired by local industrial heritage; opens days at Toyota and Qenos; meeting industrial enthused creators from Spotswood, Newport, Williamstown, Altona and Laverton; and a family night at Seaworks featuring fireworks, car crushing, sideshows and songs.
The Art & Industry Festival is produced and created by Hubcap Productions with its principal partner Hobsons Bay City Council.

"Council is very happy to be working with local resident Donna Jackson on this unique and exciting event later this year. Through her company Hubcap Productions, Donna has a terrific reputation around the country on bringing communities together in unique and inspiring ways. Being able to put a spotlight on our industrial and manufacturing past and present through an arts lens is at the heart of Art and Industry, and it's consistent with some of the themes in our arts and events plans, as well as the importance of our economic sector, its contribution to our history, and the importance of its growth into the future." Hobsons Bay Mayor Cr Peter Hemphill.
