Brunswick Mechanics Institute is a new cultural enterprise brought to you by Next Wave, Moreland City Council and through Gandel Philanthropy.

Working with leading creative organisations across Melbourne, Mechanics hosts a diverse cultural program of performance, film, talks and music, as well as classes, workshops and community celebrations. Behind the scenes, leading artists use the spaces year round to create new contemporary works.

Next Wave is supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria.
