at The Wheeler Centre

Wheeler Centre Open Day

The Wheeler Centre throws open its doors to showcase our resident organisations and their diverse activities. Six dynamic literary organisations call the Wheeler Centre home and this is your chance to get involved.

Come to chat about what our resident organisations do, their plans for the future and what kind of programs, workshops and services they offer. Melbourne Writers Festival will have a box office selling tickets to this year’s events, while the Victorian Writers' Centre gives you the chance to meet their new director, Roderick Poole, as he launches Distance by Kingsley McGlew. SPUNC introduces three of their member presses - Kill Your Darlings, Extempore and Aduki - and our mainstage will showcase other Wheeler Centre resident organisations with readings, book launches and talks.

And if you’re curious about what’s changed in the building that was once the National Gallery, Museum of Melbourne and, at one point, the Planetarium, there will be half hourly tours highlighting the buildings heritage and re-invention.
