Accommodation grant opportunity: Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander business to bring Sydney's newest public plaza to life

A new public plaza is nearing completion on George Street, Circular Quay – with a design inspired by Indigenous architecture, culture and gathering.

The City of Sydney is looking for an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander operator to manage, curate and program the plaza’s community building. This unique, flexible space consists of 300 square metres across 2 floors, an upper viewing terrace alongside a public plaza and public art installation.

Operators can bring their cultural, creative and retail ideas to life with the help of an accommodation grant.

The offer: a subsidised rental agreement

This is an opportunity to grow a business and activate the public plaza alongside an exciting mix of retailers, bars, restaurants and corporate offices with a focus on local Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander connection.

Help shape this precinct with a retail marketplace, performance venue, exhibition gallery or small cafe. You could bring ceremony, cultural practice, events and employment opportunities for community benefit.
