We are 'do it together'

The Incubator Creative Hub is the collision between arts and the people.

Incubator: A device used to grow culture.


 

The Incubator Creative Hub is the collision between arts and the people.

A vibrant and diverse destination where audience, creatives, community arts groups meet to practice, celebrate, showcase and experience art and culture.

The Incubator weaves the arts into the fabric of our city by generating opportunities for participation, knowledge and education while demonstrating the importance of arts practice in everyday life.

We are a tangible example of the positive power that artists and art organisations can contribute to community connectedness, human well-being and belonging.

We deliver an exhaustive program of events to empower artists and community to engage in cultural projects and activities.

We champion the arts on and behalf of our arts community, telling OUR stories through art.
