JOYNTON AVENUE CREATIVE CENTRE
We thank all visitors and community members who came through for the City of Sydney precinct launch event last month. Joynton Avenue Creative Centre is not yet open to the public, but we are busily planning some creative activities for you to participate in!
107 will be curating Joynton Avenue Creative Centre, the heart of the new 278 hectare Green Square cultural and community precinct. The precinct will also include the new Library, Early Education Centre and Aquatic Centre, all due for completion in 2020-22.
Joynton Avenue Creative Centre has been beautifully restored and transformed from its previous use as South Sydney Hospital nurses quarters, with subtle architectural features paying homage to the building’s history.
The Centre will provide spaces for artists, creative practitioners and organisations as well as facilitate creative educational programs, jewellery making, workshops, exhibitions and cultural events. It will become an inviting and welcoming space for the community by providing rich social, cultural and creative experiences for all.

Expression of Interest
Get involved with your new creative centre, Joynton Avenue Creative Centre. Let us know what you’re interested in:
Resident Advisory Group
A selection of residents will form a reference group to perform as a representative body for City West residents in Green Square. It is our aim to create a pathway for residents views to be expressed and incorporated in our decision making; and ensure our
events are supporting the needs of the community.
Initially the commitment of participation will be a meeting once every few weeks, then becoming quarterly and ad hoc via email communication.
Digital Storytelling Project
One of the first exhibitions at JACC will be a Pop-Up presentation by Spineless Wonders about stories. Residents are invited to write and submit their short stories to be included in the exhibition, based on the subject of Home Making and what makes your house a home. In addition, we’re looking for interesting stories about an object of significance that links to the Home Making theme.
