Background: Built in 1951, the Casula Powerhouse was one of a series of identical buildings erected to supplement electricity production during winter and power shortages. After closing in 1976 the Liverpool Council bought the site in 1978 and in 1985 held a plebiscite in which the highly diverse local population chose a community cultural facility over the other offers of an engineering depot, a sports hall or parkland. The centre opened in 1994 and the architects have, in several stages, created a building that now boasts 6 galleries and a 326 seat theatre, while also retaining elements if the industrial heritage of the building. This is one of a number of posters Culla Graffix’s Gregor Cullen created whilst also lecturing in the Faculty of Creative Arts at the University of Wollongong.
