Newcastle to host arts conference

The Federal Government has injected $80,000 into a national arts conference to be held in Newcastle on March 12-14 2013. The Renew Australia conference will draw hundreds of people to the city to discuss the concept of transforming empty city buildings into creative spaces. Marcus Westbury founded Renew Newcastle in 2008 in a bid to find short-term creative uses for buildings that were vacant, disused or awaiting redevelopment. Find out more here.
