The Cad Factory started as a warehouse venue for live music, performance and exhibitions in the inner west of Sydney in 2005. It was the first warehouse space in the country to receive Presentation and Promotion funding from The Australia Council for the Arts. The Cad Factory has seen hundreds of artists perform, exhibit, develop work and has established a strong artistic community in Sydney as well as hosting visiting artists.
The next stage in the Cad Factory’s adventure is the launch of The Cad Factory – Rural Residency Program.
Since 2007 The Cad Factory has been repairing an old abandoned school house in a small town called Birrego, between Wagga Wagga and Narrandera in regional NSW.
All that is left of Birrego is the school house which was built in 1886 for the children of surrounding farmers. It operated as a school until the 1960’s.
The Cad Factory has received funding from Regional Arts NSW to establish an artist residency program out of the school house commencing in 2011. This program will see three Australian and one International artist invited to stay at the school house to create work whilst engaging with the local community and presenting public outcomes. These residencies will be documented on The Cad Factory web page with artists writing a blog during their stay.
