Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith joined Alison James, President of the Blue Mountains Creative Arts Centre (BMCAC) to announce the success of their application for funding under the 2016 Community Building Partnership Program.
“It was my pleasure to recommend Blue Mountains Creative Arts Centre for a grant of $12,000 which will be used to refurbish their kitchen facilities,” said Stuart Ayres.
Ms James said the kitchen in the centre is roughly 40 years old and in desperate need of a renovation. As a non-profit organisation we appreciate receiving this funding.
Located on the corner of Hare and Moore Streets, Glenbrook, the brightly coloured main building and surrounding yurts offer classrooms, exhibition room and gallery.
BMCAC run a variety of classes for both children and adults including pottery, weaving and life drawing. They also host a number of exhibitions, demonstrations and market days throughout the year.
“I look forward to seeing the finalised upgrade which will no doubt be a benefit to all that utilise this facility,” added Stuart Ayres.
