You Are Here is a curated festival which showcases the best of Canberra’s diverse independent and experimental arts and culture.

Originally commissioned in 2011 by Robyn Archer (AO) to enliven the Canberra CBD in the lead-up to the Centenary of Canberra, You Are Here has grown into a significant event on a national scale, and a highlight of Canberra’s cultural calendar.

After four successful years, You Are Here is now a fixture of the Canberra arts landscape and is quickly becoming established as one of the pre-eminent experimental and emerging arts festivals in Australia.
