Unlocking Sydney's creative potential
UTS is home to Sydney’s newest creative collective, enabling arts, screen and culture organisations to thrive in the heart of Tech Central.
The University of Technology Sydney (UTS) is teaming up with the NSW Government to support Sydney’s new collaborative arts hub, Haymarket Creative.
The partnership secures prime space in Haymarket dedicated to the arts until mid-2026.
Minister for the Arts Ben Franklin said the NSW Government acknowledges and thanks UTS for providing prime space at a not-for-profit rate in support of the arts.
“I’m proud to announce the establishment of Haymarket Creative located within the UTS campus. This central and well-equipped location is the ideal new home for creative and cultural organisations to thrive,” Mr Franklin said.
Organisations opting to take up residency at Haymarket Creative include Sydney Youth Orchestras, The House That Dan Built and Sydney Writers' Room.
We are delighted to support creative organisations with a home in the heart of Tech Central where technology, creativity and innovation intersect and look forward to welcoming them to the UTS community.

Professor Andrew Parfitt, UTS Vice-Chancellor and President, said the spaces within the University campus will give eligible arts, screen and cultural organisations the assurance of long-term residency within one of Sydney’s leading institutions for innovation and creativity.
“UTS is one of Australia’s pre-eminent universities when it comes to the creative industries and we have strong and well-established connections to this important sector.
“We are delighted to support creative organisations with a home in the heart of Tech Central where technology, creativity and innovation intersect and look forward to welcoming them to the UTS community,” Professor Parfitt said.
The flexible space provides administration, meeting and rehearsal areas to suit a diverse range of artistic organisations from music, drama, dance, literature, design to cultural and auxiliary entities.
The NSW Government is seeking expressions of interest from arts, screen and cultural organisations to join Haymarket Creative. Eligible creative organisations wishing to take advantage of this opportunity to relocate to Haymarket Creative have until 8 February 2023 to submit an EOI.
