NEXT 2023

3 December 2023 – 29 March 2024

Liverpool City Council and Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre are excited to be hosting NEXT, our annual exhibition of artworks by HSC Visual Arts students from schools in the Liverpool LGA.

This is not only a great opportunity for young people from the Liverpool area to showcase their artistic talents and efforts, but it also gives members of the community a chance to see the amazing NEXT exhibition with artworks of local youths at the innovative gallery space at Yellamundie (Liverpool City Library) at Civic Place, 52 Scott Street, Liverpool.

The NEXT Exhibition is curated by Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre, which is the leading arts facility for South West Sydney. Our vision is to contribute to an inclusive and creative community through the presentation and production of compelling, quality, and diverse exhibition programs. We are particularly committed to showcasing the talents of young people in the Liverpool area and supporting them in their personal and professional development.
