Season’s greetings from the ArtsHub team

ArtsHub is taking a short and well-earned break before coming back refreshed and ready to dive into everything the arts have to offer in 2023.

It’s been a year that has reminded ArtsHub and everyone the pandemic isn’t quite done with us yet, but that vaccinations, treatments and taking precautions can really aid in mitigating its worst impacts. And so, while the arts sector in 2022 has still seen both practitioners and audiences negatively affected, the old ‘show must go on’ mentality has been ever to the fore. All hail the understudy…

This year ArtsHub moved offices to a fabulous old building right in the heart of Melbourne’s theatre land and also welcomed a new managing editor to the platform. That would be me, and I have to say ‘welcome’ is certainly the right word. It’s been a total joy to join a team of such dedicated, knowledgeable and all round decent human beings, who live and breathe the arts every single day.
