Port Phillip's $2.3 billion cultural and creative sector is our second largest industry. From film to theatre, games to software, music to media, advertising to architecture, it's driving economic growth and supporting jobs for 3,870 Port Phillip residents and 5,830 greater Melbourne residents. With a mix of strategy, policy, research, and targeted support, we ensure that Port Phillip's creative practitioners can take their ideas to the world stage.
