We are committed to the advancement of culture, to create positive social change and connect emerging communities.
107 Projects' philosophy and purpose is to improve communities by encouraging people to live creatively.
We partner with property owners, public and private entities, such as Council and Developers. These key partners, like The City of Sydney, lease the building to us at a subsidised rent, and then it is through the generosity of donations that we make creative playgrounds that capture the ever-evolving nature of artistic expression and our roots as a space for experimentation and discovery.
A gift of $500 can provide our local neighbourhood with space to connect and experience creative endeavour,
benefiting 9 artists and 95 members of community.

...and supporting more than
" 107 is simply the best venue for underground and independent art and culture in Sydney. "
107 Presents takes audiences beyond the expected to experience a curated multi-arts program that is innovative, experimental, enticing and accessible. It celebrates artistic excellence, the power of creativity to connect community and showcases Sydney as a creative city to live, work and play. Key projects include The New Plot, Hack Sounds, an annual Artist Residency and 107 Objects.
A professional development award for Playwrights, The New Plot brings new Australian stories to the stage.
In 2017, we awarded three playwrights with residencies, cash and professional development support: Christine Davey’s The Last Tiger, Sarah Doyle’s Don’t Tell Indi, and Steven McCall’s Safekeeping.
"As an emerging writer, attending the Bundanon Residency is a gift. I thank the Trust, The New Plot and all the staff at 107 for this remarkable and sought-after opportunity that I'm sure it will create the perfect springboard for new work." - Christine Davey
Become a ‘Key Player’ of The New Plot by gifting $250. The Key Players are a collective of supporters combining their impact to bring new stories to the stage.
Hack Sounds is for adults interested in electronic music, from beginners to intermediate, with and without a disability, to socialise, learn and create new music together.
“I have a physical disability and knew that hack sounds was an inclusive environment, this ticked a lot of boxes for me as I am often unable to attend venues due to access restrictions. I don't really consider myself a very sociable person either, I generally don't like doing "group" things, but after attending hack sounds for over a month now I actually look forward to going and meeting up with the other members of the group each Monday night.” - Andrew Grant.
Gift $550 to supply music equipment for 10 participants and fund a mentor session with an experienced songwriter to produce a new recorded song.
An annual grant awarded to an Aboriginal artist or curator to support their artistic project.
Awarded in 2017 to Jason Wing, we granted $6000 to invest in ‘Blak Mirror’.
“107 is a great platform as it is accessible and in an incredible location, perfect for exhibiting Aboriginal art for an Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal audience” - Jason Wing.
Gift $1000 towards our next grant and support an artistic project like ‘Blak Mirror’ in 2018.
107 Objects is a retail space that offers artists an online sales store and pop-up market space to sell their works and reach new customers.
