Construction and delivery of Mudgee Arts Precinct to the community
The construction of Mudgee Arts Precinct’s state-of-the-art regional gallery provides a cultural hub for the region and creates a platform for diverse local talent. The innovative design of the building was complemented by an exceptional inaugural year of programming which highlighted the region’s artists and celebrated a strong connection to place. The local community and visitors to the region are embracing the new artistic hub with attendance reaching over 23,000 in 12 months.
