Underbelly Arts Lab Tour


Join us on Cockatoo Island this Sunday for an exclusive FBi tour of the Underbelly Arts Lab, and to witness the live broadcast of FBi’s arts show Canvas.


This Sunday July 28, FBi’s Canvas is broadcasting live from Cockatoo Island as part of Underbelly Arts and we’d love to see you there.
Following the broadcast, Underbelly Arts Directors will take you on a behind the scenes tour to witness how artists’ works are developing, in preparation for the festival weekend on August 3-4.

11am-12pm Canvas Live Broadcast

12pm-1pm FBi Lab Tour

Places on the tour are limited. Please RSVP to underbellyarts@fbiradio.com by 12pm Friday July 26.



The best way to get to Cockatoo Island is by public ferry. Ferries depart regularly from Circular Quay (via Balmain) and Darling Harbour. Sydney Ferries’ services will be operating to the regular Saturday and Sunday timetable.

July 24-31

Artists are on site 12-6pm daily

The Lab lifts the curtain on creative process. Inviting you behind-the-scenes as a select bunch of talented artists develop their work for the Festival only weeks later, the Lab offers a rare insight into an often hidden world.

You are able to watch the artists work, ask questions, and sometimes even join in.

And just as importantly, artists can work with you before their final presentation, learning from your questions and occasionally even your input.

Together a crazy kind of magic occurs as projects are grown from ideas into realities.

We welcome you to come witness this mini-residency in action.
