Mapping Melbourne is a platform for strengthening arts networks between contemporary independent artists across the Australasian region, building connections and establishing collaborative ongoing relationships, and presenting challenging work. Each year the program brings together a potent mix of artists to forge a unique creative and artistic taskforce that investigates and interrupts often held perceptions and invites active audience engagement in new challenging and site specific Asian focused contemporary work.

Since the inaugural event in 2013, through artistic networks, MAV has engaged over 350 artists from across Australia, China, Indonesia, South Korea, Malaysia, India, Japan, Thailand, Cambodia, East Timor, Singapore, Malaysia, Tibet, Philippines and Vietnam. Backdrops have ranged from iconic Melbourne heritage sites to contemporary spaces and public places.
