Powerhouse and UTS cement ties in $10m deal

Ultimo site to become a hub for creative industries precinct as Powerhouse and UTS pal up.

Near neighbours Powerhouse Museum and University Technology Sydney (UTS) have just become a little closer, with UTS announcing a $10 million investment into the future of Powerhouse Ultimo.

The funding will go to the establishment of a creative industries precinct focusing on supporting and amplifying NSW creative industry talent in the wake of the $480-500 million renewal project of Powerhouse Ultimo, which aims to deliver new and refurbished exhibition, events and public spaces, and better connect Powerhouse Ultimo to the Sydney CBD by re-orienting the Museum to the Goods Line.
