Terri Butler MP congratulates Metro Arts for being selected as the Queensland winner of a 2020 Sidney Myer Performing Arts Award.

Based in West End, Metro Arts champions independent artists and contemporary arts practices.

After moving to the Griffith electorate in September last year, Metro Arts has contributed so much to the local community and beyond.

“I am so pleased to be able to congratulate Metro Arts on this wonderful achievement, particularly in light of the COVID-19 pandemic which had a tremendous effect on the sector,” said Terri Butler MP.

“The team at Metro Arts deserve recognition for continuing to tell and develop local and contemporary stories.

“After 40 years in its old home across the river, Metro Arts continues to thrive now in a purpose-built venue in West Village.

Recipients of the 2020 Sidney Myer Performing Arts Awards receive direct financial support for their excellence in the performing arts.

In lieu of an awards ceremony - due to COVID-19 - Metro Arts  have prepared a video which can be viewed online here: https://vimeo.com/534295372.
