Air Conditioning Project Complete

Create NSW’s Support Brings a Breath of Fresh Air to Our Cultural and Education Spaces.

We are thrilled to announce the successful completion of the Air Conditioning Replacement Project at the Coffs Harbour Regional Conservatorium, made possible through the generous funding provided by Create NSW. This support has not only improved our physical infrastructure but has also breathed new life into our cultural endeavors.

Create NSW’s investment in our organization has been transformative. The replacement of our aging air conditioning systems has not only improved the comfort of our patrons but has also created a more welcoming environment for artists and visitors from diverse backgrounds. This upgrade aligns perfectly with our commitment to inclusivity and accessibility.

Beyond the immediate benefits of enhanced climate control, this project has far-reaching implications. It has encouraged a broader and more diverse cultural participation, fostering growth in our region’s cultural diversity. Our space is now a hub for creativity and artistic expression, attracting a wider pool of talent and enabling year-round programming.

Create NSW’s support has also been a testament to their commitment to sustainability. The installation of energy-efficient systems not only reduces our environmental impact but also supports our broader sustainability goals. Moreover, this project has had a positive economic ripple effect. It has boosted local businesses, generated employment opportunities, and attracted tourism, all of which contribute to the economic vitality of our community. This, in turn, aligns with Create NSW’s mission to foster economic growth through the arts.

Create NSW’s funding has made a remarkable impact on our organization and our community as a whole. We are immensely grateful for their support, which has allowed us to not only upgrade our infrastructure but also breathe new life into our cultural space. This project is a testament to the power of public investment in the arts and the significant positive changes it can bring, and we are sincerely thankful for the investment made in our organisation by Create NSW.
