Signal location

Signal is right in the heart of the city: behind Flinders Street Station on Northbank, in the Les Erdi Plaza, at the northern end of Sandridge Bridge, and at the top of Banana Alley.

Signal is easy to get to by public transport and there is bike parking (but no car parking) on site.

Map of Signal

Signal acknowledges and respects the customs and traditions of Indigenous Australians and their special relationship with the land. The artists and organisers respectfully acknowledge that this program takes place on the land of the traditional owners of the Kulin Nation.

Signal supporters

Signal was made possible by the generous support of Mr Les Erdi AOM of The Erdi Group. Other project partners include the City of Melbourne, the Myer Foundation, the Federal Government's Regional and Local Community Infrastructure Program, the Department of Planning & Community Development and Heritage Victoria.
