The Wheeler Centre is Melbourne’s home for smart, passionate and entertaining public talks.

They connect audiences with storytellers and thinkers from around Australia and the world through live and digital events.

The Wheeler Centre is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to celebrating and supporting writing and ideas.  Their community is made up of writers, audiences and the resident literary organisations that live within their building in the bustling CBD of Australia’s most liveable city, Melbourne.

Through an extensive range of conversations, debates, readings, performances and discussions, alongside career growth opportunities for writers programs, the Centre explores ideas of the now, highlights literary developments and showcases emerging and established writers.

The Wheeler Centre is the centrepiece of Melbourne’s status as a UNESCO City of Literature, partnering with other iconic literary organisations to support Australian writers.
