Money for au­di­to­rium re­fur­bish­ment

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Ararat Arts Precinct users will be able to en­joy bet­ter ameni­ties and a more com­fort­able the­atre ex­pe­ri­ence af­ter fund­ing from the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment’s Build­ing Bet­ter Re­gions Fund.

Mem­ber for Wan­non Dan Te­han said he was de­lighted $25,000 would go to re­fur­bish­ing Ararat Town Hall au­di­to­rium by pro­vid­ing 56 new seats in a bal­cony sec­tion.

“Ararat has a thriv­ing arts com­mu­nity and this fund­ing com­pletes the re­fur­bish­ment of the au­di­to­rium,” he said.

“The au­di­to­rium is a site of lo­cal so­cial and his­toric sig­nif­i­cance, with the bal­cony es­pe­cially rep­re­sent­ing a con­nec­tion to the orig­i­nal town hall au­di­to­rium. That’s why it is so im­por­tant to see 56 seats in the bal­cony be­ing re­placed, so Ararat com­mu­nity can con­tinue to en­joy this won­der­ful hub for the arts and live per­for­mance.”

Ararat Ru­ral City Coun­cil is man­ag­ing an over­all the­atre re­fur­bish­ment of $50,000.
