The elected Council identified a need for an Inner West Pride Centre at the beginning of its term in 2017. We ran a wide-scale visioning process with the community in March 2019 and also asked for suggested locations.

Read more about the visioning process.

In 2020 Council resolved to run an EOI for suitable organisations to manage and deliver a Pride Centre at Newtown Town Hall and ran an application process for a Reference Panel to guide the process.
