About Us

Penrith Performing & Visual Arts is made up of the Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre, Penrith Conservatorium, Q Theatre and Penrith Regional Gallery, and represents a diverse and dynamic blend of creative practice in the Western Sydney region. Since our establishment back in 2006 we’ve worked to showcase creativity in all its forms to help improve people’s lives and make Penrith a great place to live, work and play.

Our education programs guide people from all ages and stages through their artistic pathways – from those seeking mainstage fame and excellence in their chosen artform, to those wanting to further a personal passion.

As an entity established to offer cultural centres for the entertainment, enjoyment and education of our local community, Penrith Performing & Visual Arts offers more than just the performing and visual arts – it offers a vision of a creative Penrith for the whole community.

Our venues are just the beginning.
