Arts & Culture

Print this Page

Wollongong has a colourful and vibrant cultural life, complemented by a rich blend of heritages from countries around the world and our own Indigenous communities.

We believe culture is a vital part of Wollongong’s future and we're working to bring business, industry and local artists together to create a unique community environment.

We support the development of cultural activity through networking, training, events and project development in line with the aims of the Cultural Plan.
