Sydney College of the Arts at the University of Sydney (SCA), dLux Media Arts, Artereal Gallery and Paper Plane Gallery have joined forces to create a new arts precinct in Sydney.

The Rozelle Contemporary Art precinct (RCAP) will be launched on Friday 9 March as part of Art Month Sydney with a series of free events and exhibitions in Rozelle.

Works will highlight Rozelle's rich contemporary art scene, including street art, site specific installation and sculpture, performance, video and new media art alongside free public talks and forums.

"Sydney College of the Arts is excited to be working with leading contemporary art organisations in Rozelle to bring greater public awareness to the thriving contemporary art scene that exists in this part of the city," said SCA Dean, Professor Colin Rhodes.

"Rozelle has for many years played an important role in both the development and the representation of emerging artists, and many of Australia's most well known artists have studied at SCA. The RCAP marks a new and exciting stage in our partnerships with dLux MediaArts and Artereal Gallery, who have represented and exhibited work by many of our students, staff and graduates."
