Our Vision for Fed Square

Fed Square is a globally iconic destination and Melbourne’s gathering place, where visitors are immersed in unique cultural experiences and architecture that celebrate Victoria’s rich heritage and identity.

Fed Square is Anything But Square!

World-class art galleries and installations. A diverse range of food and drink. Thrilling, extraordinary events that capture the hearts of Melburnians year after year. Fed Square is anything but square.

Since opening in 2002, Fed Square has seen more than 100 million visits and been named the 6th Best Public Square in the World.

Civic and Cultural Charter

We’re proudly guided by our Civic & Cultural Charter. Our Charter was developed closely with the Victorian State Government and Melbourne City Council, neither of whom govern Fed Square but whom we keep a strong relationship with.

The Charter outlines Fed Square’s role in Melbourne as a centre for creativity and innovation, arts and cultural festivals, gorgeous gardens and river access and as the focal point in town for contemporary cultural and civic activities.

In line with the Charter, Fed Square ensures that these themes and strengths find expression in Fed Square’s management philosophy, marketing, programmed events, and hiring and leasing activities, including the way we run the commercial spaces that make all the good stuff possible.

Fed Square is the organisation responsible for the coordination and management of all the self-governing tenancies (that’s the cafes, art galleries and so on), programming and marketing of all the public spaces and all aspects of asset management and development.

Melbourne Arts Precinct Corporation

Fed Square is set to become an integral part of a new entity created by the Victorian Government, the Melbourne Arts Precinct Corporation (MAP Co), responsible for bringing to life an expanded, single continuous arts, civic and cultural precinct stretching from NGV Australia to the soon to be built NGV Contemporary.  MAP Co will be responsible for the delivery of the Melbourne Arts Precinct Transformation project – Australia’s largest ever cultural infrastructure project – and management of Federation Square and the new Melbourne Arts Precinct public spaces.
