COUNCIL APPROVES NEW GALLERY
Devonport City Council has approved the relocation of the Devonport Regional Gallery and creation of a new contemporary arts centre within the Devonport Entertainment and Convention Centre, in adopting the 2016/2017 Capital Works Budget. The $1.8 million project received strong support during community consultation in early 2016, with the new centre to be situated adjacent to the new LIVING CITY multi-purpose building being constructed in Rooke Street. We will keep you updated with further details relating to the project as they become available.
