Arts NSW reveals new space
Designs for a new outdoor function space at Sydney’s Walsh Bay Arts Precinct have been unveiled by Arts NSW. Dubbed Waterfront Square, initial plans filed with NSW Planning & Environment outlined the shaded outdoor area would be capable of hosting special events, arts festivals, open air cinemas, food, wine and product showcases as well as commercial events. Cost-effective and flexible, the proposal for Waterfront Square states the event space could potentially host a maximum of four oneday major events annually for up to 10,000 people, as well as a combination of arts and cultural festivals for up to 7,500 people. The project is currently on public exhibition until 16 December.
