In response to the current unfolding health situation, our upcoming events have been postponed and the gallery closed to the public until further notice. We’ll be posting our latest news, as well as a few flashbacks, on our homepage. Please go to our What’s On menu to see details on individual events.
fortyfivedownstairs is one of Melbourne’s most renowned and multi-faceted creative hubs
As an unfunded and not-for-profit organisation we support independent, experimental and thought-provoking art forms, striving to make money for artists – not from them.
fortyfivedownstairs acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land upon which we gather to share art and performance, and pay our respects to their Elders past, present and future. We recognise the strength, pride and expression of all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people
