artsbusTV - SOUTH MELBOURNE
St Kilda, South Melbourne, Port Melbourne...
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 South Melbourne. The “Writers Room” workshops have involved a group of kids and teens who have shared ideas for the episodes.
Filming in South Melbourne commenced in December 2022 with teens who film, direct and star in the interviews and storytelling.
