About The Boite
We are Victoria’s iconic multicultural music organisation known as The Boîte. Founded in 1979, we support artists from diverse cultural communities through the dynamic presentation of unique cultural experiences, nurturing creativity, collaboration, access to and active participation in the arts.
Through our prolific program of festivals, events, radio programs and music releases we have presented and promoted hundreds of excellent musicians born in over 100 different countries at over 5,000 events before audiences exceeding 800,000 and just as diverse.
What We Do
The Boîte facilitates creative spaces for artists to build audiences and to promote awareness, inclusion and respect.
We offer opportunities to educate children and youth to engage with diversity, develop respect and experience the benefits of music. The Boîte Schools Chorus involves dozens of schools and hundreds of students from across the state. LeTs is a library of teacher's resources full of educational activities based on songs from different cultures, mapped to the Victorian curriculum. Our regular concerts are open to all ages accessing traditional songs and new compositions, right here in the artistic melting pot of Melbourne.
