Save Carriageworks, scrap the Powerhouse move

Carriageworks has gone into voluntary administration. It's future is in doubt unless the government steps in. 

Coronavirus has impacted our creatives and artists and now one of our most iconic institutions is being left to fall. But the government still wants to waste over $1.5 billion moving the Powerhouse Museum!

We say scrap this wasteful and pointless relocation and instead spend the money saving our struggling arts and creative industries - starting with Carriageworks.

Sign the petition to tell the Premier to scrap the Powerhouse move and save Carriageworks! 


Dear Premier -  

The NSW government has committed $1.5 billion to a shortsighted plan to relocate the Powerhouse Museum. That is money that could be better spent supporting Carriageworks and other organisations that are so vital to us all. I'm calling on your government to: 

  • Reset funding priorities including scrapping the $1.5 billion Powerhouse Museum relocation 
  • Guarantee funding to keep Carriageworks alive
  • Implement a rescue package to support struggling artists and creative industries workers via wage subsidies and grants
