Art Trams 2019

Melbourne is renowned as the cultural capital of Australia, with a city-wide love and appreciation of art.  Since 2013, we've supported the Melbourne International Arts Festival as well as local artists with a mobile, public gallery on our most beloved of canvases - our trams.  This year as with previous programs, eight trams will be wrapped with unique designs by inspiring artists.
