Sydney is recognised as the creative capital and cultural heart of Australia, and we envision Chippendale to be one of the driving forces behind this pulse. With strong support from the City of Sydney, our vision to make Chippendale the next arts mecca of Sydney is becoming a reality.
The residents of Chippendale - younger and more culturally aware than the Sydney average - place a demand for lifestyle and recreation options in the area, as do international and domestic visitors. The district is growing accordingly, with new developments and businesses keen to place their stake in this suburb, which is projected to have an additional 1,500 young professional residents.
The exciting new Sydney shopping and entertainment destination Central on Broadway is alive with activity and a new feeling is filling the streets! Make sure you take a look.
We are anticipating a massive response to the Chippendale New World Art Prize brief for 2014. As a result of a very generous personal donation of $100,000 by arts philanthropist and Chairman of Frasers Property Australia, Dr Stanley Quek, this prize has been made possible. It is growing in significance and importance as a prize that embraces all creativity. We look forward to receiving your applications by Friday 18th April 2014.
The BEAMS arts festival will be held for the 3rd year running on Saturday September 20th and is likely to attract an even larger audience after massive coverage last year.
Come, explore, create and participate. Let Chippendale be the setting for your artistic or entrepreneurial aspirations, and help us showcase the creative culture that Chippendale is known for. With your help and the dedication of the Chippendale Creative Precinct we are attracting new national and international audiences to the area and increasing economic activity for local business.
