Calendar listings are enhanced by profiles and media drawn from the directories. Musical event listings are synced with LiveVictoria.com and numerous other local listings.

The resource map and directory indexes cultural resources such as venues, organizations, support services, studio spaces etc. The Artist directory contains media-rich, free, permanent profiles for local artists and ensembles. All profiles are cross-referenced with videosarticles, rosters, photos, art, audio and more to create a rich, interconnected, living history of arts in Victoria.

The Art Feed, is a central gallery, of work by local artists as well as public art. Anyone can submit a piece, of current or past art. Public art is plotted on the Public Art Map

The Opportunities Engine helps connect artists and organizations with employment, grants, calls for entry, and more. Anyone with a profile can post. You can get a daily or weekly email digest of all new opportunities in the categories of your choosing.
