City East Community and Cultural Plan
City of Sydney
As part of the creation of the Oxford Street Darlinghurst creative precinct in the City of Sydney, Cred prepared a comprehensive community and cultural facilities plan for the City’s East village. This included:
- Audit and mapping of local community and cultural facilities (including art galleries, performance spaces, creative arts spaces and community centres).
- Engagement with industry and government stakeholders and partners.
- Review of strategic plans and policies for arts and culture in Sydney.
- Rationalisation plan for City of Sydney owned facilities to deliver sustainable community and cultural infrastructure to address resident, visitor and industry needs and vision of tenants and partners for projects.
A key outcome of this Plan was the repurposing of the historical Tabernacle building in Palmer Street as the Eternity Playhouse, and the relocation of the Darlinghurst Theatre Company to this location to act as facility custodians in the delivery of locally and globally focussed cultural projects.
