Ararat Arts PrecinctPutting Ararat on the map as a cultural, performing arts and tourism destination, the Victoria government has appointed building firm, Nicholsons to rebuild Ararat Arts Precinct.

 

Ararat’s historic Town Hall will be redeveloped, enhancing the Ararat Performing Arts Centre (APAC) and the Ararat Regional Art Gallery (ARAG), both housed in the building.

 

“Through our investment, we’re breathing new life into the historic Town Hall building and reactivating an iconic building in Ararat,” Minister for Regional Development Jaala Pulford said.

 

All existing spaces will be refurbished to make them accessible for people of all abilities. New glazing, insulation and climate controls will be installed to maximise building efficiency, and improvements will be undertaken to the loading bay, car parks and driveways.

 

The enhanced facilities, along with expanded display and storage spaces, will further Ararat’s reputation as a cultural tourism destination, capable of developing and attracting ambitious, blockbuster programs.

 

It will increase the town’s ability to attract major exhibitions and nationally recognised performers to the region, providing a boost to the local economy and creating jobs.

 

Construction will begin this month and is anticipated to be completed by mid-next year.
