New North is Narrm's (Melbourne) newest platform for local musicians who push boundaries in their areas of practice, situated on the land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation. We empower artists and audiences to try the untried, experience the new, and expand conceptions of the possibilities of sound.

Ambitious ideas need space and opportunity to reach their fullest expression. Through concert presentations, commissions and community initiatives, New North aims to support and celebrate innovation from Melbourne’s extraordinary musicians and sound artists, both established and emerging. 


New North's inaugural 2021 series is presented at Brunswick Mechanics Institute, a centre for experimental performance, and will include three concerts and an Emerging Artist Commission. New North is supported by Australia Council for the Arts.
