Since 2002, fortyfivedownstairs has presented independent, experimental and challenging art forms.
We have enriched Melbourne’s cultural reputation by providing a multifaceted program of exhibitions, performance and debate.
Our survival as a not-for-profit organisation is largely due to the dedication and loyal support of a small band of private donors. We need to enlist your support for our continued survival so that we can make money for artists rather than from them.
We’ve got big plans for 2019/2020 – and we need your support to keep our doors open. We have a mission to provide an affordable space in the heart of the city. Help us support the artists to keep the walls and floorboards talking.
After seventeen years we’re not slowing down!
