Description:

Opened in January 2007, CarriageWorks is a new home for contemporary arts in Sydney. Built on a vision of a vibrant cultural life for our people and artists, it's a place for creativity and innovation with a unique spirit, where artists are given the opportunity to conceive, develop and present their work in an inspiring and creative atmosphere.

The mission of CarriageWorks is to provide a multi-venue centre focused on the creation and presentation of contemporary art. With large flexible theatre spaces, gallery and exhibition space, rehearsal rooms, a scenery workshop and office space, it is intended to create a working hub for practitioners and audiences of the small to medium arts sector.

Looking towards our future, we will provide a supportive environment for artists to engage with and create their work, act as a home for arts industry partners and offer substantial and unique spaces for hire for a myriad of events and performances.

CarriageWorks is housed in the old Eveleigh Rail Yards at Wilson Street, located within the emerging Redfern Waterloo precinct, and has been developed by the NSW State Government through Arts NSW. Starting with the cathedral-scale foyer, the physical beauty and scope of CarriageWorks is inspiring. The distinctive nineteenth century industrial atmosphere of the former railway carriage and blacksmith workshops have been retained, with many heritage iron and brick details featured in the regeneration of the building.
