Carriageworks produces and presents a diverse, multi-disciplinary program that explores contemporary ideas and issues by working with local and international artists from a range of cultures and communities.
Carriageworks is a multi-venue centre focused on the creation and presentation of a multi-disciplinary program. Carriageworks is a working hub for practitioners and audiences of the small to medium arts sector.
Carriageworks is housed in the old Eveleigh Rail Yards at Wilson Street, located within the emerging Redfern Waterloo precinct, and has been developed by the NSW State Government through Arts NSW. The distinctive nineteenth century industrial atmosphere of the former railway carriage and blacksmith workshops have been retained, with many heritage iron and brick details featured in the regeneration of the building.
Adding to the rich cultural atmosphere at Carriageworks are a number of Resident Organisations, all working within the contemporary arts sector: Erth, Force Majeure, Performance Space, PlayWriting Australia, Stalker and version 1.0.
