State Government gifts ownership of building
The former Cudgegong Shire Building will be the future location for a dedicated Art and Cultural Centre following a transfer of ownership from the NSW Government to Council.
Council is currently preparing a submission to the Regional Cultural Fund to support a refurbishment of the building, and extension for a gallery space capable of hosting travelling exhibitions with workshop areas to accommodate professional development and education programs.
A Regional Gallery ranked in the top five most important projects to 52 per cent of people surveyed during 2016/17 Community Engagement. Council will be seeking community feedback as part of the initial design phase.
