The Petri Dish -   Breeding Culture

Embracing the collaborative, creative process


The Petri Dish - Breeding Culture was started in 2006 with a simple desire to bring together like-minded people. We believe art and business are collaborative creative processes that promote a culture of learning and growing collectively. Over the past decade The Petri Dish has grown into a skilled ensemble specialising in artist management, events, printing and design.


At The Petri Dish - Breeding Culture we bring together artists, businesses, and the community to create art and culture. We strive to align our artists with the right audiences and help businesses build their brands while creating long-term, mutually beneficial partnerships.
