Redevelopment News: August

The City of Bunbury was delighted to attend the Lotterywest Grant Certificate Presentation today at the Stirling Street Arts Centre hosted by Premier Mark McGowan.

The City was successful in securing $1M from Lotterywest towards the redevelopment and expansion of the Stirling Street Arts Centre, which will match the City’s own contribution of $1M towards this project.

The project aims to improve and increase the space occupied by Stirling Street Arts Centre groups through provision of a new facility adjacent to the current building. This new and versatile multi-purpose space will consist of new studio spaces, toilets, a meeting room, an administration space including offices and storage, a reception area, an art display space and a new kitchen.

Hello Bunbury Summer School!

SSAC Open Day & 2018 Summer School Launch
The weather really shone on the 21st of October for the SSAC annual Open Day. Most groups were represented and fascinated the public with their skills and knowledge. We were privileged this year to also have many of the BSS 18’ tutors come along and give us a preview of the classes they will be teaching during January. The Summer School launch was kicked off by Collete McEntee from Maker + Co and the crowd was kept entertained by Dave Fawcett, hip hop and swing dancers as well as a young member of the Bunbury City Band. The hype of the day induced the first bookings for Summer School classes and these have continued to be steady, so make sure you book soon!
