Cultural development and creativity are critical to Penrith’s potential as a Regional City by contributing to the City’s economic vitality, social equity and environmental sustainability.
Penrith City’s culture is more than the arts – it is also about the lived experience of the diverse communities of the City including those of different ages and interests.Engagement in cultural activities and programs can focus on what is special about the City and its people and how building on the past and present can contribute to its future.
Penrith City Cultural Policy provides leadership in achieving a vibrant and creative City. The goals highlighted in the policy refer to creative places and facilities that are vibrant with a creative edge and the neighborhoods and
communities that have a sense of place and unique identity.
The St Marys Corner Community and Cultural Precinct is an active and creative community hub and is one of the City's iconic places that instil a sense of pride and help realise the creative potential of our City.
Art Everyday St Marys is an open and welcoming collaborative platform which invites all creatives from our community to participate. Artists and artisans, students of creative disciplines and community members of any age that are engaged in any form of creative activities are welcome!
Since its opening in 2010, St Marys Corner has developed or hosted a great number of exciting community, cultural and art projects and events. We have welcomed creatives from all walks of life working across different art forms - from visual arts and craft, traditional, classical and contemporary music and performance to writers, photographers and multimedia artists.
Creatives of all ages and abilities have contributed to the idea of Art Everyday - from ordinary people passionately engaged in recreational creative processes and activities, to learning children, young people and art college students as well as professional local, metropolitan and international artists.
