Darebin Arts and its artists sweep up six Green Room Award wins!

Darebin Arts Speakeasy and FUSE artists were big winners at the annual Green Room Awards this year.

On Monday 11 July, Melbourne artists gathered at the Capitol Theatre to celebrate the 39th Annual Green Room Awards, recognising the achievements of the arts across all disciplines.

Artists from Darebin Arts Speakeasy and Darebin FUSE Festival programs walked away with six wins, including five for Speakeasy shows and one FUSE Darebin show, in partnership with the Municipal Association of Victoria. Congratulations to all the winners.

Mayor Councillor Lina Messina was at the event to celebrate the awards for our creative artists.
