About the Barn

The Arts Barn Group aims to build and provide a creative space for Artists and Cultural groups to come together, to collaborate, to tell their stories and to explore the possibilities in producing new works in a sustainable way. It will be a centre for learning and for sharing new skills and a place to showcase the wealth of creative talent on the Central Coast.

It will also provide and encourage new opportunities for Arts based business and employment. Development of the facility will involve and include the community as much a possible, it aims to encourage participation of all ages and provide specific programs and events for local youth, our indigenous community, the elderly and the disadvantaged with the aim of connecting people through creativity and pride in “place”. The Centre will promote environmentally friendly practices including using recycled materials, using low impact techniques, use of local materials, green technology and design whilst considering conservation, preservation and celebration of our natural environment.
