Cowra Civic Centre celebrated 50 years in December last year and Cowra Shire Council is using the significant milestone to examine possible future ideas for the venue.
The community are being encouraged to have input into the future directions of the Cowra Civic Centre through an online survey. The survey researches the communities’ thoughts about the type of uses the centre might have, interests in the performing arts, physical improvements needed, accessibility and philanthropy.
“I urge all members of the community to have their say; we want to know your thoughts about this important council asset,” said Mayor of Cowra, Cr Bill West.
Council has recently appointed Jonathan Llewellyn as the new manager of the Cowra Civic Centre. An arts administrator with 20 years experience, he has been charged with the purpose of creating a future plan for the Civic Centre and rolling it out.
“The timing is perfect. With the centre turning 50, it seems very fitting to stop, reassess and examine its future,” said Jonathan. “I’m keen to find out how the centre might transform to be an essential part in the creative and cultural life of the community.”
In addition to the online survey, opportunities exist to be part of a focus group for further in-depth discussion and exploration of ideas for the future plans of the centre.
