Readers will be thrilled to learn that artsACT have posted their plan for the Kingston Arts Precinct Strategy. In the making since 2003 the strategy is intended to:
— outline a vision for the Kingston Arts Precinct by identifying opportunities to expand and enhance creative arts activity at the Kingston Foreshore;
— identify future high-level needs required to make it viable as an Arts Precinct;
— inform the future use of the Old Bus Depot Markets and the Fitters’ Workshop;
— identify the potential need for new purpose-built facilities;
— develop a staged approach for its implementation to provide for a range of uses that will complement activity already occurring at the Old Bus Depot Markets and the Canberra Glassworks.
They plan to have their plan by March.
