We believe in nurturing creativity with major arts events, community grants and prizes, creative spaces for artists, and an integrated Creative Strategy. Here you’ll find out how to participate in our local arts and culture through the Manly Art Gallery and Museum, the Glen Street Theatre and our artist’s residencies.
Arts and Culture
Glen Street Theatre is owned by Northern Beaches Council, a proud initiative of former Warringah Council. Located in a unique bushland setting.
Discover Manly Art Gallery & Museum, with visual arts and museum exhibitions, workshops, artist talks, performances and special events.
Sculptors, painters, ceramicists and photographers, whatever your creative medium, we have affordable work spaces for you.
Artists’ books are an art form, and every two years Manly Library holds an internationally recognised Artists’ Book Award.
This is your chance to be supported while you express your creative vision as an artist in residence on Sydney’s Northern Beaches.
