Creative City Sydney

A vibrant and creative city

Last year we invested more than $34 million in our cultural life. This includes producing free major public events like Sydney New Years’ Eve and Art & About Sydney, sponsoring major festivals like Sydney Festival and the Biennale of Sydney, commissioning new public art works and providing practical support and funding for our creative communities.

Creative City Sydney is specifically designed to make sure you can easily find information about:

Our vision for Sydney

We recognise we have an unmatched opportunity to reimagine Sydney’s natural and built environment and support programs and individuals who will ensure our city remains internationally competitive for generations to come. In fact, this is 1 of the 10 directions in our long-term strategic plan for the city, Sustainable Sydney 2030.

Our commitment to the cultural and creative life of the city ensures these values are tangibly and imaginatively integrated into the way we live – not only in galleries, stages, and museums – but in the informal and often unplanned ways our daily lives are enriched by the work of artists.

Learn more about the work we are doing, by reading our Cultural Policy, Public Art Strategy and Policy, Open Sydney: Strategy and Action Plan 2013-2030 and our plan to revitalise one of Sydney’s principal boulevards, George Street.
