WORLD-CLASS ARTS COMING

Govt confirms Parramatta Powerhouse  
THE Sydney Business Chamber, Western Sydney says NSW Government’s announcement to relocate the Powerhouse Museum to Western Sydney as a win for Sydney and NSW.
 
David Borger, Director of the Sydney Business Chamber, Western Sydney, said: “The Chamber is pleased with the announcement that the Powerhouse will be coming to Parramatta as Western Sydney will get the world-class museum it rightly deserves.
 
“It is good to hear that the riverbank site has now been secured thanks to a $140M agreement between the NSW Government and the City of Parramatta, meaning the funds will directly go into local arts and culture, with $100M for the Riverside Theatre.
 
“The Riverside Theatre is the hardest working theatre in Sydney with more than 1,000 performances a year and it is just not big enough to accommodate larger audiences.
 
“Now we have certainty that the Powerhouse will be moving to Parramatta, we can get on with constructing an iconic building - a tier one cultural institution in the geographical centre of Sydney.
 
 “The new museum will be one of the pieces of the Parramatta infrastructure puzzle, adding to transport infrastructure such as the Parramatta Light Rail and the Sydney Metro West as well as our new Western Sydney Stadium.
 
“We will be very happy to get rid of the ugliest car park on the Parramatta River in exchange for the best cultural museum in Australia.”
