Investing in Creative Cultural Futures

Emerald Arts Precinct


A plan is being developed to transform the Emerald Library, community gardens and surrounding buildings into a multipurpose precinct of facilities and open spaces for art-making, innovation and recreation.

This project aims to meet the needs of a wider arts and cultural services region through the delivery of community facilities and services, as identified in our Creative Cultural Futures Strategy 2016-2026. The purpose of this strategy is to recognise, support and celebrate the partnership between arts and cultural groups, community and government in the common goal of strategic and innovative arts and cultural services delivery.

This project will enable us to support local economy and artists; grow arts, heritage and cultural tourism and appreciation; provide access to arts, heritage and cultural activities and modern library services; create a welcoming and inclusive safe space, and enhance community wellbeing and encourage diversity.
