Art and Culture

Newcastle has nurtured, supported and inspired generations of artists. Boasting more artists per capita than any other city in Australia, it is a thriving creative hub. Wander around town and you’ll find a wide range of galleries and public art that populates the Newcastle landscape.

The City of Newcastle owns and operates many of the cultural institutions listed below and actively supports the creative sector through grants and sponsorship opportunities.
