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 art, heritage and cultural activity through our Creative Wollongong 2019 - 2024 [10.2 MB] strategy.

Town Hall Art Panel Renewal Project
Council is seeking to engage artists to develop designs and fabricate artworks on supplied panels to be exhibited in the Town Hall Laneway situated between the Wollongong Town Hall and the Wollongong Art Gallery. The large scale artworks will be exhibited in areas of high visibility, encourage creative engagement and embrace the energy of city life.
