Council says a new arts centre in the Liverpool CBD would complement the Casula Powerhouse arts centre.

Would you like to see a new community arts and cultural centre built in the Liverpool City Centre?

If so, what would it look like and what kind of exhibitions, performances and facilities should it have?

These are some of the questions Liverpool Council is asking the community about building a new community arts and cultural facility within the Liverpool City Centre.

“All great cities should have inspiring and high quality arts venues,’’ says Councillor Tony Hadchiti.

“We want our community to have the same opportunities to see diverse and innovative cultural activities as any other city.

“And we want Liverpool to be the entertainment destination for South West Sydney.

[social_quote duplicate=”no” align=”default”]“The proposed centre will complement the excellent programs and services currently provided at the Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre,” he said.[/social_quote]

The concept for a community and cultural facility in Liverpool is supported by a recent report by Deloitte, Building Western Sydney’s Cultural Arts Economy, that highlighted the need for greater investment in Western Sydney’s cultural arts economy.

In planning for this facility, council has appointed cultural planner Sue Boaden to undertake a demand analysis and feasibility study to identify and assess potential uses and demand for an iconic community and cultural facility.

The study will consider existing and future community cultural facility needs and will determine the feasibility of delivering a large scale purpose built facility within the Liverpool City centre.

Council invites residents to have their say about the proposed community and cultural facility.
