  • Project update

    10 days ago

    The Advisory Group - consisting of 34 passionate artists, creatives, businesses and residents – have worked hard to help establish clear parameters for the Creative Art Space project.

    It was a unifying theme in all discussions across the three Advisory Group workshops (held during December 2017 to March 2018) that the new Creative Art Space must balance the needs of artists and the broader community. The group recommended that the space should facilitate both the development and presentation of art; it should be a space where professionals and amateurs can create, new artists can learn, and the broader community can experience the development and exhibition of art.

    The independent consultant on the project (KJA Consulting) has now presented their report on the outcomes from the Advisory Group engagement to Council

    View workshop report - April 2018

    The report will inform the selection of a site and the development of a Concept Plan for this exciting project.

    A draft Concept Plan is underway and likely to be available for public comment in the coming months, so watch this space!

  • Background

    12 months ago

    On 27 June 2017 the Administrator’s Merger Savings Fund was adopted.

    Through the Merger Savings Fund an allocation of $1 million has been made in 2017/2018 for the development of a new Creative Art (Cultural) Space in the northern end of the Northern Beaches.

    We’re looking for input from the community to help build the vision for the space.
