Learn at the Centre for Creativity

The new Centre is our first permanent, purpose-built home to build both individual and community creativity. Inside the heart of a building that symbolises creativity and collaboration, the Centre’s new year-round program of workshops, talks, performances and installations will inspire imagination, encourage creativity, play, and nurture lifelong learning through experimenting and participating.

Thank you to our Centre for Creativity major donors: our founding donor Yarranabbe Foundation; Ove Arup Foundation; Turnbull Foundation; Boyarsky family; and The Greatorex Fund. And to all our Opera House donors who enable so much of what we do.

Thank you also to our Global Goals Partner Dettol for their support of the Centre for Creativity and the Opera House’s commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

We believe everyone is creative

Creative Learning at the Opera House explores the art and artists on our stages, the architecture, science and engineering of the building, and the rich, on-going First Nations history of Tubowgule, here on Gadigal land.

Creativity has the power to inspire, unite us in times of challenge, and move us to joy. Creating together fulfils our deep need to belong. Join us and re-learn the power of creativity in your life – after all, it’s in our DNA.
