Giving Sydney a world-class base for the arts
The refurbishment of Walsh Bay Arts and Cultural Precinct will be a vibrant hub for performing arts that will enhance Sydney’s reputation as a global cultural capital.
The redevelopment will double the arts and cultural offering at Walsh Bay, including the adaptive re-use of Pier 2/3. This redevelopment will provide new arts facilities including theatre, performance spaces, rehearsal rooms and provide a space for a range of artistic and heritage events including the Sydney Writer’s Festival and the Biennale of Sydney.
This will provide the resident companies with a world class base from which they can increase engagement with communities in Sydney and across New South Wales.
