Excitingly, Council has been successful in securing an additional $410,000.00 funding through the Creative Capital Program which will support supply and installation of Audio-Visual infrastructure and equipment within the new performance spaces which will strengthen the facilities reputation as a unique premier performance destination on the Mid North Coast of NSW.

With an investment of over $8M, works continue on the Memorial Hall to Hub Project to restore and transform Bellingen’s iconic Memorial Hall into a ‘Cultural Arts Hub’, with a vision of fostering collaboration, community, and creativity.

This iconic project will see the upgrade of the existing facility and build new spaces that welcome new and diverse performances, performers, arts, and workshops to our Shire. It will provide a renewed facility that inspires collaboration and artistic creativity within the community and seek to foster and nurture a healthy community culture through supporting various arts and cultural initiatives.

“Our Community Vision speaks to being Connected, Sustainable and Creative, and through this investment to significantly enhance and restore such an iconic part of our community’s heritage we can be true to that vision”, said Mayor, Cr Steve Allan.
