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.

‘Loved Ones’ reflects the pleasure of reunion; a celebration of those meaningful things which have pulled me back together again, after a period of fragmentation. ‘Loved Ones’ presents a transition from the blisteringly dry and desolate heart of a great desert, to the borderline between sand and fertile flora. As I collect and record my loved ones, dark images and vignettes still permeate and disturb the beautiful view. The flowers confuse me with their captivating beauty and the dark life that exists below them. Cary Lee
Photographic Exhibition by Tom Jones
Launch: Thursday 20 March 6pm – 8.30pm
Exhibition Dates: 20 – 31 March
Exhibition Times: Monday to Friday 9am – 5pm, Saturdays 1pm – 4pm
Back in September 2012, on an ordinary Sunday, Tom Jones decided he was going to photograph and tell the story of a new person every day, for a year. It was an idea that stemmed from a desire to meet the strangers we would normally walk past on the street, to discover the diversity of our cities.
He began by photographing his best mate and girlfriend, but the project soon evolved into a popular street portrait blog, where strangers with extraordinary stories were photographed on the lanes of Sydney, Paris, Manchester, Barcelona and Vietnam.
September 2013 marked the end of Tom’s journey, the end of what had become known as ’365 People’, and several months on, they are ready to be exhibited to the beautiful folks of Sydney.
