“Without art, the crudeness of reality would make the world unbearable”. George Bernard Shaw Mr Shaw was onto something. Embracing all aspects of art and culture enriches our minds and souls; stimulating our imagination to create the incredible and understand that anything is possible. Melbourne is one of those remarkable places that overflow with artistic and cultural expression allowing each part of this wonderful city to have its own vibrant and unique culture. Our vision is that through this group, Henley members will have the opportunity to exchange thoughts and ideas about the different areas of the arts and discussing how it influences modern society and culture in a creative environment. The Arts and Culture group welcomes anyone who is passionate about art, music, theatre, dance, politics, language, design, life and love.
