What's on City of Melbourne


UNESCO City of Literature office

As one of only five UNESCO Cities of Literature, Melbourne's literary heritage and culture is internationally recognised.

In June 2014, Melbourne officially became home to a City of Literature office. The new office is located at the Wheeler Centre, will support and highlight the existing literary scene in Melbourne.

A Director of the City of Literature Office has been appointed to oversee the coordination and promotion of Melbourne as a City of Literature and will represent Melbourne in the UNESCO Creative Cities Network.

Find out more about City of Melbourne’s UNESCO Cities of Literature status on the Arts Victoria website.
