Casula Powerhouse

Home > Sydney > Galleries | Art
Published January 26th 2011
The Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre was not always the centre of arts and theatre in the Liverpool region. When it was first constructed, it was a powerhouse on the banks of the Georges River.

Since the 1950s, however, the arts space has been refurbished to accommodate theatre and performance spaces, an exhibition room, artists studios, seven alternate exhibition spaces, as well as a cafe and store.

The Casula Powerhouse caters not only for exhibitions, but also hosts events and educational initiatives to enhance the cultural life of the local area. Until 20 February, 2011, the "Loveart For Schools" exhibition will display artworks by 10 artists that are listed on the NSW Curriculum.

Similarly, throughout the school year, there are guided tours provided at a cost of $3 per student, at any time between 9am and 4pm.

Although students are an obvious focus for the Powerhouse, there are also a variety of short courses run for an older demographic.

Apart from this educational function, the beginning of 2011 will see the Casula Powerhouse show-casing over 30 paintings by Jacquelyn Ngo, a six year old girl.

With a variety of special events, theatrical productions, and the opportunity to get involved, there are a number of ways that visitors can make use of this multi-purpose arts space.
