Arts Centre upgrades

The Arts Centre at the Araluen Cultural Precinct has been taken to a whole new level with the completion of recent upgrades.

A mezzanine level back-of-house is the latest exciting upgrade to the Arts Centre. The mezzanine aims to increase the Centre’s capacity for productions by providing a dedicated office space for incoming production and technical managers.

Director of the Araluen Arts Centre, Dr Mark Crees, is excited that the Arts Centre is now able to provide better facilities necessary for professional producers to be in the centre.

The $250,000 upgrade was completed on time and within budget by Alice Springs contractors Scope Builders NT.

The project is also a credit to all involved – the Department of Infrastructure, Department of Arts and Museums and the contractor.

The mezzanine is just one of two recent upgrades at the Arts Centre with the new Yaye’s Café completed last year. The anticipated commencement date of operations is late April,  early May.

Yaye’s was constructed using the original Mess House, a heritage listed building at the precinct. Alice Springs based company MPH Carpentry and Construction won the contract for the construction.
