Melbourne 47 is a series of site-specific performances celebrating the City of Melbourne. In reference to the declaration of Melbourne as a city by Queen Victoria in 1847, the Environmental Performance Authority is staging 47 performances around the streets, parks and buildings of the city between November 12 and December 12. Many are participatory events, inviting audiences to open their imaginations and senses to the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of the city.
The festival is supported by City of Melbourne and Monash University.
