Livesites’ vision is to enliven the city – making it a vibrant, exciting and safe place in which to live, work and play!

The Livesites place activation program was conceived in October 2003 as part of the Newcastle City Council’s Cultural Master Plan workshops. Key stakeholders from the city decided that cultural activities should be introduced into the city, bringing the city alive to complement new buildings and cultural infrastructure being completed – as part of a wider strategy of urban renewal. It is governed by a Board and a Programming Sub-committee, both of which meet every two months.
Livesites is an initiative of the Newcastle City Council, Hunter Development Corporation, ARTS NSW.
