Our Beat 

Our Beat is a monthly open-stage event for all artforms and people. Artists across music, dance, film, spoken word and more can perform or just see who is doing what. It is a great way to be part of the creative community and find future collaborators.

Our Beat will return to the Drum once gatherings are permitted. If you want to know more or talk about getting involved in future events, contact Billy Kelleher, Theatre and Public Programs Officer billy.kelleher@cgd.vic.gov.au or phone 8571 1630.
