Thinking of venturing down to Carriageworks? It’s well worth seeing, especially if you like interesting architecture, fashion – or farmer’s markets… We caught up with The director of Carriageworks in Eveleigh, Lisa Havilah to find out what makes Carriageworks a must-visit venue…
What makes Carriageworks a unique venue?
The Carriageworks building was built in 1892 and was the place where all the trains were built for New South Wales.
It provides an incredible context to present contemporary art forms in because it is large in scale and very flexible.
We present a diverse program across contemporary visual arts, dance, music, food and all the creative industries.
What are the best things to do if you’re not seeing a show?
We have visual arts exhibitions, a great bar and every Saturday from 8am–1pm we have the Carriageworks Farmers’ Market, which brings together over 80 New South Wales producers and chefs.
