Pine Street Creative Arts Centre is the City of Sydney’s only dedicated, community focused arts facility, and has been in operation in its current form for approximately 15 years. The Centre aims to encourage participation in lifelong learning within a cultural and creative framework.

Artistic development is encouraged through all the Centre’s activities, including a diverse and dynamic range of arts workshops, exhibitions, community projects and events. These are designed to promote local arts and cultural activities, provide positive social outcomes and encourage local creative economies. The creative process is powerful – as well as learning to make art, the projects people work on at Pine Street can help them build self-confidence, a sense of achievement and community belonging.

The Centre offers a range of creative arts workshops for all sections of the community: children aged 5 – 15 years, youth aged 16 – 26 years and adults. The Centre also runs an Outreach program, providing creative and capacity-building opportunities to marginalised individuals and groups.



Each booking day, we collate applications as they come in, on a first received basis. We will notify you of your booking status as soon as reasonably possible. Please do not call the Centre to check, as our staff will not be able to confirm your booking until all forms have been collated.

Due to the popularity of our courses, there is a limit of one class per medium, per person on our adults program.

Exhibition : Fate or Destiny – Living Life with Passion
By: Nilmini De Silva

Exhibition Dates: Wed 29th Oct – Fri 7th Nov
Drinks with the Artist: Sat 1 November 12pm – 3pm (gallery open 11am - 4pm)
Artist Talk @ 1.30pm

Nilmini De Silva—a Sri Lankan born Australian artist and engineer—lives life with passion. She has spent time on all seven continents, travelling, volunteering and pursuing her loves for photography and writing.

Nilmini now presents her most recent journeys in a photographic exhibition at the Pine Street Gallery in Chippendale, encouraging others to pursue their own destiny rather than be trapped by fate. Aptly titled Fate or Destiny, the exhibition and accompanying photobook, illustrate how our lives are the outcome of our choices—either to accept the life that is laid out for us or to make conscious choices and follow our hearts.
