Lithgow Cultural Industry Cluster


Lithgow Economic Development


Welcome to the Lithgow Creative and Cultural Industry Cluster

The Lithgow Creative and Cultural Industry Cluster connects local businesses encouraging partnerships and trade whilst increasing the profile of this developing sector.

Promoting the creative/cultural industry sector to both the community and tourists is also a key function of the cluster group.

The Lithgow Creative and Cultural Industry Cluster relies upon the active membership of local businesses and encourages members to promote the cluster and participate in the group’s various projects.


In 2010 in recognition of Lithgow’s growing creative and cultural industry sector, Lithgow City Council was awarded funding by the NSW Department of Industry and Investment to assist with establishing and developing a Creative and Cultural Industry Cluster.
