About Us

Shopfront is a contemporary arts centre located in south eastern Sydney – a cultural network and production co-operative where all young people, regardless of background or ability can create themselves.


At its multi-arts facility in south eastern Sydney and on-line, Shopfront reaches, responds to, and engages with young people at their point of need and interest. It’s a one stop creative haven where under 25s make innovative new work and meaningful connections.


Shopfront has always been a beautiful and crazy idea – from its radical beginnings in 1976 as a not for profit cooperative theatre for young people to its current day progression to all encompassing arts production house, the focus has been providing contemporary performance opportunities and arts activities that engage and involve young people in a relevant, empowering and resonant way. In early years Shopfront played an instrumental role in the development of Errol Bray’s seminal text on devising work – Playbuilding and over its long history created music, films, plays, musicals, art shows, installations, dance pieces, festivals, posters, magazines, and too many performances to list.
