Utp is leading a not so quiet revolution of art that is socially responsive, inclusive and that reflects the diverse nation we live in. We lead from the lands of the Darug people and acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded.
Utp is a unique commissioning and producing organisation. We make long-term investments in collaborations with artists and/or communities from outside the dominant culture to give form to extraordinary ideas. We produce a year-round program of performance, dance, visual arts, learning and community-led projects, unlike anything you have seen before.
Our curatorial model ensures projects are self-determined, giving rise to truly artist and/or community led projects.
We are committed to offering access-for-all to brilliant ideas, unusual experiences and critical thinking.
