Welcome to our second Raise the Roof event!

This time, we’ll be starting earlier to soak up more of the sun and including an art market for last minute Christmas Presents – made by local artists and makers.

Raise the Roof is all about creativity and community.

Bring your lungs, pens, pencils and paints!

We’re holding a series of intimate events to raise funds for Create or Die to insulate and complete our roof renovations.

What to expect? Amazing live music from local and visiting musicians, shared food, art and good community vibes. It will be a great way to meet some fellow artists and join a creative community, foster collaborations and spend the summer Sundays.

Create or Die is an arts organisation, and our creative home in Marrickville has been lovingly birthed and grown over hundreds of hours, and a lot of blood, sweat, tears… and laughter, by a group of dedicated artists who are passionate about providing a space in Sydney to foster the local artist community and bring the arts to the public eye.

The space is home to fine artists, writers, muralists, film makers, musicians, illustrators, photographers and even contemporary jewellers.

Raise the Roof aims to fundraise $15,000 over a series of events and projects for Create or Die to complete the roof renovations, insulate and add some sound proofing (we’re under the lowest part of the Marrickville Flight line!) and upgrade our Gallery space with a new gallery wall and lighting.
