At the heart of Melbourne’s culture of creativity, we curate unique experiences that bring people together and break new ground in culture and the arts.

Created in 2002 and now made up of 200 artists, administrators, and technicians, the collective offers roughly 1,000 performances a year—both artistic collaborations and signature shows. In 2017, The 7 Fingers will inaugurate its own Creation and Production Centre. The centre, based in heart of Montreal’s Quartier des Spectacles, will house the collective’s trademark creation and production activities all under one roof.
