Vision & values
Our vision is to be as bold and inspiring as the Opera House itself. As an organisation, we value diversity, inclusion & belonging, First Nations, accessibility and have committed to creating a positive future through the UN Global Goals.
The Opera House plays an important role in shaping our nation, life and culture. As we approach our 50th anniversary, we are setting out the positive change we want to drive over the next two years, and beyond. Because we have a committed workforce. Because it will make the Opera House a better place for everyone. Because what we do next will inspire others.
Tubowgule, as the land on which the Opera House stands is known to its Traditional Custodians, the Gadigal, has long been a gathering place for storytelling, ceremony and culture. The Opera House continues this legacy today by embracing and celebrating the culture of Australia’s First Peoples.
At the Sydney Opera House, we believe that art and culture is a catalyst to drive positive change. As a global icon, we have an important role to play when it comes to building a better, more sustainable future for all. Together, we have the power to make a difference.
Our goal at the Sydney Opera House is to provide barrier-free access, making the site, building and the experiences they offer accessible to all people. We provide a range of access services, performances and dedicated programs for people with disabilities.
Sustainability is in our DNA. For thousands of years, the Gadigal people would come to Bennelong Point to meet, share stories and music. Their land management ensured the preservation of their food sources. The Opera House’s architect, Jørn Utzon, incorporated sustainable design elements such as a seawater-cooling system into the building which opened in 1973.
