'Lismore Quadrangle' Project Wins $2.85m from National Stronger Regions Fund08.12.2015
Lismore City Council’s dream of creating the ‘Lismore Quadrangle’, a signature town square and cultural precinct for the city is closer to fruition. The plan includes a redeveloped regional gallery and office space for Arts Northern Rivers.
Council has been successful in its bid for $2.85 million from the Australian Government’s National Stronger Regions Fund.
The project will also bring a range of cultural initiatives for the Northern Rivers community, including projects for people with a disability, young people and Aboriginal artists.
The funding represents half of the project cost with the balance to come from prior fundraising, other grants, a major benefactor and council commitments.
Lismore Regional Gallery Director, Brett Adlington, said the project had been supported over a long period of time by the Member for Page, Kevin Hogan, and Lismore Mayor, Jenny Dowell.
Local architects, Dominic Finlay Jones have been appointed to design the relocated gallery into C-Block with Northern Rivers Conservatorium and Lismore Library.
