Arts and Culture

Leichhardt Council recognises that arts and culture are an important aspect of any community, and welcomes the community’s development, active engagement and involvement in cultural activities.

The suburbs in Leichhardt are home to many creative industry workers and a range of outstanding public art pieces, such as the panoramic community mural at the Crescent in Annandale, the large number of Wall2Wall murals and the award winning mural mosiac located at the Hawthorne Canal Railway Underpass.

The area is also home to several art and cultural organisations such as Legs on the Wall, the NSW Writers Centre, Sydney College of the Artsthe Italian Forum Cultural Centre, as well as many commercial galleries and artist studios.
