The focus of 4DIVERSE is to socially and culturally connect diverse people through a thriving community of arts, well-being, and cultural programs. Our multi-functional gallery space has been home to many exhibitions of emerging local artists, workshops, lectures, performances, launches, markets, screenings and helping the well-being of the local community. For the last four years, we have assisted, volunteered, produced and curated several community-engaging events and indoor and outdoor public art installations such as LATIN AMERICAN ARTS EXHIBITION ST KILDA 2018 which was held at 4DIVERSE Hub gallery with outdoor activities that included music, dance, performances, drink and food from the region.
Following the event was a month-long series of activities related to the exhibition which was held at the gallery. This included collaboration with Latin American studies lecturer/researcher from RMIT University (Dr Elizabeth Kath), who contributed to the conceptualisation of the event, art curation, and gave an opening speech on Latin American culture in Australia. 4DIVERSE has run public events such as:
