Welcome to Creativity Cluster
Creativity Cluster is a group of eight 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 2022, we were excited to be working on a collective project called ‘Melbourne: Our Creative Heart’ with funding from a City of Melbourne Arts Grant. You can read several blogs about our planning and experimentation, and view the exhibition online.
