Explore UnitePlayPerform a hyper real universe pioneering radical new pathways at the intersection of art, health, science and wellbeing. Experiment, play and expand within the Old Union Bank bursting with large scale soft sculpture object art, wearable soft sculptures installations, live soundscapes, 3D animation, sensory sound tools and interactive tactile and tangible materials ready for you to choose, build and embody!


UnitePlayPerform is activating a deliciously ambitious program full of participatory experiences that inspire play, co-creation, inclusivity, connection, community and radical self expression. The program is a full throttle fantasy including intimate Playshop sessions, performance lead experimental works and interactive durational experiences that invite you, the participant to engage and develop UPP’s Playkit collections and design your own universe.


Join award winning Artist, Founder, Educator and Disruptor ØFFËRÏNGŠ (Melissa Gilbert) for a journey through the incredible venue at the old Union Bank for a truly unique experience as she facilitates a journey into her socially engaging art. UnitePlayPerform is an award winning studio launching their first furniture series ‘Sentients’ at Melbourne Design Fair, selected by the NGV curators for the ‘Discovery’ section of the fair. UPP follows their furniture showcase by opening up a week long program to celebrate the design of our human experience supported by Melbourne Design Week and Cecile Place Precinct ‘Art at the Bank’ artistic residency.
