Creativity Cluster

Welcome to Creativity Cluster

Creativity Cluster is a group of nine women artists who live in and around Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Unlike most art groups, we each work in a different medium.

What we have in common, however, is a shared passion for engaging with communities. Some of us work internationally, some nationally, but all of us work locally through the visual arts.

In 2020 we were featured as part of the Seniors Festival reimagined. Watch the video to find out more about our group and our online exhibition, De-Construction/Re-Construction, supported by a City of Melbourne Covid-19 Arts Grant.
