Melbourne now countdown – day 50

Calling all passionate collectors, enthusiasts and hobbyists of Melbourne!

Got an inkling for ink bottles? Crazy for cacti? A penchant for tin wind-up toys, vintage vinyl, swap cards, snow domes, Victorian-era electric shock therapy apparatus? The NGV would love to hear from you and see your delectable collectibles.

The NGV wants to hear from passionate collectors, specialists, off-beat enthusiasts; the purveyors, hobbyists, cultural groups and doyennes of special interest and for you to transform Melbourne Now’s Community Hall into a swap meet of your heart’s desire!

Community Hall is dedicated to the communities of Melbourne. It will be a prominent feature at NGV International that will showcase the talent and diversity that exists throughout our vibrant city through a daily rotating program of talks, performances, demonstrations, workshops and Show and Tell. So come show off and share your collection or special interest at the NGV.

Please get in touch and email us at [email protected] – we would love to hear from you.
