To mark the 150th anniversary of the Eight Hour Day in 2006, Arts Victoria in partnership with Museum Victoria, Victorian Trades Hall Council, University of Melbourne, RMIT University, Melbourne Workers Theatre, Australian Centre for the Moving Image and the State Library of Victoria are funding a series of events throughout the year.
The Eight Hour Day project team is based at Trades Hall in Melbourne. Their job is to coordinate all the events in the commemorative program and organise the production of supporting material.
The team's ability to deliver a comprehensive program of events is greatly enhanced by the involvement of our program partners.
If you'd like to become involved in the Eight Hour Day project or would like more information, contact the project coordinator Leanne Shingles by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone Leanne on 9659 3583.
