artsbusTV - Mornington Peninsula

Dromana, Arthurs Seat, Main Ridge...

Airing on Channel31 and online, artsbusTV is a community arts TV series that showcases creativity from the emerging generation. Facilitated by the Artists for Kids Culture artsbus team, the twelve episodes feature young hosts, actors and directors across Victoria aged 10 – 17 years old.

Two artsbusTV episodes feature the Mornington Peninsula. The “Writers Room” workshops have involved ten secondary school aged participants who shared ideas for the episodes. 

Filming in the Peninsula commences in January 2023 with teens who  film, direct and star in the interviews and storytelling. 

Upcoming programs: 

  • February 4 2023 – Peninsula Film Festival, Dromana
  • March 11 2023 – International Women’s Day at the Pig & Whistle, Main Ridge
