Asset for the region

Mr Chester said once completed the facility would be a great asset for the region. "Following these works the theatre seating will be installed as well as the foyer ceiling and lighting boxes and works to the MacFarlane Burnet meeting rooms. The community will be excited to see the works continuing to progress and approaching the completion of the venue."

Mr Chester said, "It will be a truly spectacular venue for the community to utilise but also a major drawcard for professional groups to visit and perform locally. Major projects like this one improve community infrastructure, support local jobs and the economy not only during the construction stage, but into the future as well."

Mr Darren Chester secured $10 million for the Gippsland Performing Arts Centre. The State Government and Latrobe City Council also contributed funding. Latrobe City Council is administering the project.
