Work starts on Narooma School of Arts site

Work has started on the School of Arts site for the new Narooma Arts & Community Centre (the NACC).

Eurobodalla Shire Council is currently modifying its sewerage infrastructure in Bowen Street to service the new NACC. This involves realigning the sewer mains and providing a new service connection to the School of Arts site and up to the rear of the service station.

“It’s part of Council’s contribution to the Project,” said Narooma School of Arts President Jenni Bourke.

Eurobodalla Mayor Matt Hatcher and Deputy Mayor Alison Worthington met with the School of Arts committee on site on Wednesday for a full briefing on the Project’s progress.

Mrs Bourke explained the NACC Project is a community initiative on community-owned land with three multi-use studios/rooms and a large gallery.

“It will be at the heart of our community with creativity, learning, health and wellbeing benefits for the whole region as well as economic benefits through cultural tourism, training and job opportunities.”

NACC Project architect CK Architecture is finalising detailed design with a team of consultants in readiness to proceed to tender.

The majority of costs for the Project will be met by a $7.27m grant from the Bushfire Local Economic Recovery (BLER) Fund jointly funded by the NSW and Australian Governments.

The NACC is due to open its doors in the second half of 2023.
