Mr Barilaro said the expansion will include a national standard main gallery, new workshops and exhibition spaces, a new café and better storage to protect its valuable collections from floods.
“This project marks a new phase for arts in the Clarence Valley and will create a vibrant cultural hub both for locals and new visitors to enjoy,” Mr Barilaro said.
NSW Minister for the Arts Don Harwin said regional NSW has a rich history when it comes to arts and culture and the Regional Cultural Fund will help to ensure a strong future.
“This funding represents an opportunity to attract new tourists but it also offers educational benefits, gives raw talent a creative outlet, and may even inspire the younger generation into a new arts career,” Mr Harwin said.
