Diwali or Deepawali is the festival of lights and is one of the most significant occasions in the Hindu calendar. Celebrated by many people in our local community, it symbolises the victory of light over darkness.

The Casula Powerhouse team have created some family-friendly activities that you can do at home.

Sensorium is a multisensory immersive exhibition with objects created to stimulate the senses. The exhibition can be perceived with numerous sensations such as sound, sight, smell and will encourage the audience to discover heightened sensory observations while being immersed in textures, smells, colours, and sounds.*

* Due to COVID19 regulations, instead of being an interactive exhibition that includes touch, Sensorium will encourage the audience to experience the exhibition via sight, smell, and sound.


Teen Curators is a collaboration between Casula Powerhouse and students from schools around Southwest Sydney.

Students were given the opportunity to select artworks and curate the exhibition in Casula Powerhouse's Kids Gallery. They were also invited to create their own work inspired by selected artworks from Casula Powerhouse's online collection.

This program gives students an insight into working in the arts industry in a professional capacity. It also gives students from Years 9-11 a chance to prepare for their High School Certificate in Year 12.
