Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre calling for pARTners!

The Way Out West Festival for Children caters to the diverse interests and needs of children in the West and South West Sydney region. By working closely with locally and nationally recognised artists and companies, Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre produces an annual contemporary children’s festival that engages and inspires children and their families. The program includes premiere performances and hands on art-making workshops in an atmosphere designed to explore and encourage creativity and imagination.
