The rejuvenation of the Walsh Bay Arts Precinct will create a public arts and cultural hub on Sydney’s famous waterfront, while preserving its unique, iconic heritage.
The project will double the arts and cultural space at Walsh Bay, with the creation of new arts facilities and performance venues in Pier 2/3 and refurbished facilities in Wharf 4/5.
On completion, the revitalised Walsh Bay Arts precinct will be home to an expanded group of prestigious companies: Sydney Theatre Company, Sydney Dance Company, Bangarra Dance Theatre, Sydney Philharmonia Choirs, Gondwana Choirs, The Song Company, Bell Shakespeare, Australian Chamber Orchestra and Australian Theatre for Young People. In their rejuvenated home these companies will add to the vibrancy and diversity of Sydney’s night time economy, increase cultural participation and enable a range of new local jobs.
