OUR VISION FOR FED SQUARE

To be recognised internationally as a contemporary world site and Melbourne’s inspirational public space.

To manage and develop Fed Square to actively support and reflect Melbourne’s pre-eminent civic and cultural strengths.

More than just a big TV

Fed Square’s Multimedia Program works with a variety of artists, organisations and content providers to present dynamic, engaging and vibrant multimedia projects that utilise the Fed Square’s urban screens. From a real-time Gangham-style danceoff between Australia and Korea to time-lapse film installations, Fed Square’s Big Screen is a platform of creativity, interaction and provocation.

Fed Square’s daily screen program, Fed TV features everything from Melbourne Highlights and news coverage to live sport and curated content. Key partners include:

  • ATOM – Australian Teachers Of Media
  • Australian Children’s Television Foundation
  • AFL
  • Culture Victoria
  • MIFF
  • AIDC – Australian International Documentary Conference
  • VAMFF – Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival- Cultural Program
  • Emerging Writers Festival
  • ABC Open
  • ACMI – Screen It & Mediatheque
  • Blindside – Blindside continues to support our thriving contemporary art community by bringing the finest and most fantastical works to enthusiasts throughout Melbourne.

The Multimedia Program also works closely with Fed Square’s Creative Program to bring a range of live art, multimedia and audio-visual works to life through screen-based events. The team collaborates with the likes of Pause Digital Festival, Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival, Craft Victoria and the Other Film Festival to support emerging multimedia artists, host film competitions, create new works and test new technologies.

Recently, Fed Square’s Multimedia Program tested a new video conferencing system that links Fed Square with the civic square of the City of Dandenong in the south east through the use of outdoor screens. The activity saw the slow rhythmic moves of Tai Chi simultaneously stepped out in Fed Square and Dandenong Civic Square while streaming in real time on both urban screens at both locations.

To see what’s coming up on the program check the Fed TV guide. Major screen events are also listed in the What’s On calendar.
