Funding enables Goulburn Performing Arts Center to stage shows in flexible spaces
An award from the NSW Government Creative Capital Fund at the Goulburn Performing Arts Center enables performances to be staged in flexible spaces such as the entrance aisle and ‘The Meeting Place’ foyer and bar.
A grand piano, other lighting and sound equipment and portable technical gear for performances outdoors and in smaller spaces have been secured, and will ensure GPAC is a flexible and well-rounded venue from day one once opened in March 2022.
MP for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman welcomed the funding and said: “I am delighted that the NSW Government is investing in not only building these arts facilities, but also ensuring they have the right equipment to operate under the highest standards. Funding for this specialized equipment means that we will make more use of these facilities and help them provide even better cultural experiences for our local audience. »
GPAC Director Raina Savage adds that “Securing a large concert and other orchestral facilities will make GPAC a world-class concert venue, capable of attracting national and international artists of the highest caliber. and to provide a professional performance experience to our own talented locals. We are also excited to be able to rejuvenate and connect with our outlying communities through the purchase of quality technical equipment for touring and outdoor performances.
Tickets are now on sale for nine different shows at the Goulburn Performing Arts Center in 2022, with a second release of shows going on sale in mid-January.
The Goulburn Performing Arts Center will be officially open over a huge weekend to be held on March 25-26, 2022. The highlight of the weekend will be a spectacular community performance to be held on Friday and Saturday evenings.
The GPAC Season Kickoff for 2022 featuring their curated program of high caliber shows and a free community open house will take place on Saturday April 2, followed by a free short film event on Sunday April 3.
