Culture At Work
(Community Recognition Statements, Wednesday 12 May, Legislative Assembly)
On behalf of the Sydney electorate, I wish to recognise Culture at Work's contribution to the arts and science community.
Culture at Work is an artist-led art science creative hub connecting art and science that supports artists and researchers to innovate across disciplines and in experimental projects. Culture at Work collaborates with universities, councils, art festivals, schools, institutes and regional galleries to create art science programs. It holds exhibitions and public talks by artists and scientists and provides creative workshop programs for parents and children. Culture at Work has operated from the historic Scott Street Terraces in Pyrmont for many years. This has been important to Culture at Work – a secure base and long term engagement with the local community has allowed strategic planning and time for developmental projects. I've supported their ongoing residency and asked the minister to ensure heritage protection as well as a home for Culture at Work. I congratulate Culture at Work for their contribution to the Sydney electorate's culture, art and science sector and hope that their unique work will continue to educate and challenge our ideas, understandings and knowledge.
