$47k to Narooma School of Arts and Soldiers War Memorial Hall


Member for Bega Andrew Constance has today announced that the Narooma School of Arts and Soldiers War Memorial Hall have received $47,655 from the NSW Government to complete an important arts and cultural infrastructure project.

Mr Constance said the Narooma School of Arts and Soldiers War Memorial Hall would use the funds to upgrade and enhance the 90-year-old Hall, including the construction of usable wing space for the stage, a new dressing room and an exterior awning to relieve foyer congestion.

“I am pleased that the School of Arts and Memorial Hall committee have secured yet another round of funding for further upgrades.

“This announcement follows from the committee being successful in obtaining $53,964 through the NSW Government War Memorials Grant program.

“A total NSW Government investment of $101,619 into Narooma to continue works on this project is simply fantastic.

“Right here, where it is needed, this regional capital funding is supporting important small-scale infrastructure projects that maintain our resources and facilities and build community participation in our arts and cultural activities,” said Mr Constance.

“This funding category encourages collaboration and partnerships here in the regions, with NSW Government support being matched on a dollar-for-dollar basis with other funding from local government, community groups and organisations.”

Deputy Premier and Minister for the Arts Troy Grant said the NSW Government is investing in regional cultural organisation across the state.

“Across NSW, the Government is helping to revitalise arts and cultural facilities, including performing arts centres, galleries, museums and community centres, ensuring people can experience diverse activities regardless of where they live.” Mr Grant said.

“Improving access to cultural activities, particularly in regional NSW, is a priority of this Government and is identified as an area of investment under our 10-year policy framework, Create in NSW.” Media Release
