Arts in Cumberland

The art and culture of Cumberland are diverse, complex and vibrant.

Residents come from 124 countries and the artists in our community present a variety of art forms in our public spaces, for community celebrations and festivals, art workshops and for exhibitions at our art gallery in the Auburn Botanic Gardens, the Peacock Gallery and Auburn Arts Studio.

The public artwork adds to the vibrancy of the area and highlights Cumberland as a truly unique local government area. For other information on Arts in Cumberland visit:.
