Arts Centre - Major Update

Woohoo!

Our community arts centre project is off the ground! This month we have received three fantastic pieces of news:
  1. Our local council has promised us a building. It is the building we had hoped for, and in an ideal location - right in the heart of our town. It will be ours in approximately two years.
  2. Our submission to a state arts department was accepted, and they will soon begin helping us establish ourselves as a robust not-for-profit group.
  3. A local industry giant has granted us almost $100,000.00 in funding!  This will cover our rent in a short-term location until we can move into our own building.
Not bad for less than six months worth of work!
