The development of a purpose-built Arts Centre for Kiama is a long held wish, which over the years has been developed into a $12-13 million arts precinct concept, with a multi-purpose theatre space, galleries, workshop rooms, a restaurant and car parking.
The main building will incorporate the Old Fire Station, and extend over the land now occupied by the old ambulance station and the building behind on Shoalhaven St. The Joyce Wheatley Centre will be repurposed as a creative space.
Having missed out on a number of grants, hopes are now pinned on obtaining a $9 million grant from the State Government.
Over 500 people have signed a petition to show their support. You can add your name at Gareth Ward’s Electorate Office by 19 Sept
