Culture Bank Wollongong’s core purpose is to help create a vital cultural life in the greater Wollongong area. Our aim is to inspire the imagination of our community and galvanize our creativity. Anyone who lives or creates in the Illawarra and wants to:
- explore a passion
- initiate an idea
- make some art or music
- give a concert
- tell a story or give a talk
- write something and share it
- make a film
- present a comedy routine
- recite some poetry
- create something that uniquely expresses life, stories, and shared experience – or, CULTURE!
