fortyfivedownstairs was established in 2001 to provide a versatile and interesting space for performance, exhibitions, forums and music.
Situated in a former factory, and gallery, in Flinders Lane, fortyfivedownstairs offers a home for innovative, original performance in music, dance, drama and physical theatre.
The vision for fortyfivedownstairs is to create a versatile, centrally located and affordable platform for visual arts and performance.
As a not-for-profit venue, supported by its foundation patrons and sponsors, it has become a mini cultural powerhouse and rapidly established itself as one of Melbourne's most popular and respected venues for music, exhibitions, theatre and intellectual discussion.
Every exhibition and theatre production sees fortyfivedownstairs transformed into an exciting new environment.
Hundreds of artists, performers, musicians and volunteers have exerted an extraordinary amount of energy and emotion over the past five years and it is because of these people, under the curatorial guidance of Mary Lou Jelbart and with the financial support of its patrons that fortyfivedownstairs has become an essential part of Melbourne's rich cultural life.
