Brown’s Mart is an iconic, much loved performance space that has been the centre of community arts development for over 40 years. It is the only venue in Darwin that supports a continuous program of new, local theatre in an intimate setting and welcoming atmosphere, entertaining audiences with stories that are engaging, culturally diverse and thought provoking. As one of Darwin’s oldest and most significant heritage buildings, located in the heart of Darwin City, it is a draw card to those visitors to the Territory looking to identify and experience local culture and history.
