About Empire Projects



We believe in the power of the arts to enrich our community.

The Empire Theatre is one of Australia’s most successful regional theatre venues, hosting over 130,000 visits annually. 

The Vision which underpins Empire Projects is 'To nurture, enable and inspire the cultural capacity of our community.'

We value VIBRANCY, COLLABORATION, and TRANSFORMATION in our operations, programming and project development. This is reinforced through a strategy of multi-tiered arts engagement across a diverse cross-section of our community.

Through Empire Youth Arts, Community Projects and Education Liaison activities, Empire Projects administers and facilitates a wide variety of programs covering training, artist development, education support, workshop facilitation and unique performance and development opportunities with visiting artists.

Empire Projects is always keen to collaborate with organisations, schools and artists on projects where arts based activities can help with wider social issues or community cultural development. We often apply for grants to conduct community based projects and achieve cross-sector outcomes. Feel free to get in touch to discuss opportunities.
