The Melbourne International Arts Festival is Australia's premier annual celebration of the arts. Filling the whole city for over two weeks, the event welcomes the world's best in theatre, dance, visual arts, opera, music and literature.

Melbourne city is renowned for its abundance of theatres, galleries and performance spaces, all of which take on an international aspect in October during the Arts Festival. Families are not forgotten, with a range of free events to keep little ones entertained too.

Melbourne Arts festival started in 1986 as an Antipodean version of Gian Carlo Menotti's Spoletto Festival (following the Italian and American examples) but, in an enlightened procedure, invites artistic directors to programme two, three or four years only. Menotti oversaw the first three festivals, with five intervening directors until Jonathan Mills took over in 2000. Between 2002 and 2004 the director was Robyn Archer. The director for 2005 to 2008 was Kristy Edmunds, succeeded by Brett Sheehy in 2009 and 2010.

First held in 1997, Sculpture by the Sea sees the coastal path from Bondi Beach to Tamarama decorated with outdoor sculptures. Over 400,000 visitors come to view more than 100 works by both Australian and international artists.

The brainchild of David Handley, the first al fresco exhibition was so successful that, in cahoots with Sydney's Olympic organising committee, 1998 saw sculptures in place at five sites across the country - Darwin, Noosa, Albany, Bondi and the Tasman Peninsula. The festival website has an impressive gallery of previous sculptures.

Paul Selwood was announced as the winner of The Balnaves Foundation Sculpture Prize of $65,000, the main prize at Sculpture by the Sea in 2011.
