M.U.K., the Melbourne Ukulele Kollective was formed in March 2004 by Dean 'Dino Divo' Denham to provide a vehicle for the large number of ukulele players that reside in Melbourne, both amateur and professional, to perform and exchange ukulele related information, tunes and technique. MUK also establishes links with schools and community groups and conducts regular ukulele workshops in both playing and making of ukuleles.

The Kollective holds monthly “Open MUK” gigs, at which uke’ers can get up and have a play, swap tunes, and meet others.

The Kollective has hosted the Melbourne Ukulele Festival (MUF) and the associated Pimp My M.U.F. a decorative display of custom painted and decorated ukuleles. Now in its fourth year, the Festival centres on the fair City of Darebin in Melbourne's north. The 2014 festival runs from March 7-9.
