Contribute & create

The Library holds more than two million books, pictures, newspapers, maps and more in its collections. We've created a space where you can get creative with some of this vast array of diverse materials, and contribute your own creativity, expertise and skills.

So dive in! Create something new with our images, share your unique stories, be inspired by our Creative Fellows, post your photos of the Library and the work that you do here or contribute to our digitised newspaper article correction campaign.

This is just a taste of what’s in store – come back soon to see what’s new.

#CreateArtHistory

In 2017 State Library Victoria teamed up with Redbubble, the global creative marketplace, to create independent art history.

Almost 2000 artists remixed, reused and reimagined images from our three inspiration themes:
