Our Story

“Bringing regular TV programming across the Arts in Australia”

Alexarts TV was developed as a way of engaging with artists, performers and writers, presenters, and production staff impacted by the COVID-19 lockdowns and providing them with employment opportunities and an online channel to express themselves and reach audiences.

This is part of the vision our Founder and Patron Aleksandar Vass OAM has for the Alex Theatre Project in the City of Port Phillip.

Alexarts TV is a live streaming TV channel featuring programming that promotes the arts in Australia; including visual arts, film, theatre, music and writers.

The channel is run by Alex Read Theatre Performances Inc, a not-for-profit Registered Charity (ABN: 72810450276) based at the Alex Theatre complex on the Fitzroy Street Boulevard, St Kilda, Victoria.

The channel was born out of the COVID-19 lockdowns which had a devastating effect on the work and employment prospects of artists, performers, musicians, and writers.

Alexarts TV was developed as a way of engaging with artists, performers and writers, presenters and production staff impacted by the COVID-19 lockdowns, and providing them with employment opportunities and an online channel to express themselves and reach audiences.
