The green light has finally been given for the proposed Karratha Arts and Community Precinct, after $10 million of funding for the construction of the project was approved earlier today in second round offers.
In June, the City of Karratha narrowly missed out on the first round of the Federal Government initiative funding, which was planned to supplement the construction of the City's first significant cultural art's hub.
The $54 million project is set to bring some long-awaited facilities, to support cultural and artistic growth in the region. The centre will not only support current community groups in their artistic adventures, but will provide a workeable space to establish a local recognition of cultural talents across many different disciplines in Karratha.
The proposed precinct boasts a magnificent arts centre and gallery space, an outdoor event space complete with amphitheatre and concert space/stageing, as well as a new library and space for the local history office.
