Pine Street Creative Arts Centre is the City of Sydney’s only dedicated, community focused arts facility and gallery, 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 aged 18+. The Centre also runs an Outreach program, providing creative and capacity-building opportunities to marginalised individuals and groups.
