Fitters Workshop
(Question No 1983)

Ms Le Couteur asked the Minister for the Arts, upon notice, on 8 December 2011:

(1) In relation to the Fitters’ Workshop and given that page 160 of Budget Paper No.3 states that “This project will adapt the 98 year old Fitters’ Workshop to a community print and lithographic studio. Together with the Canberra Glassworks, it contributes to developing the Kingston Arts and Cultural Precinct”, is the $3.9 million appropriated for this budget output attached specifically to the Fitters’ workshop, the Megalo relocation, or only to a specific combination of both.

(2) If Megalo is not relocated to the Fitters’ Workshop, will the $3.9 million be redirected to the (a) provision of other premises for Megalo and/or (b) refurbishment of the Fitters’ Workshop for other uses.

Ms Burch: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

(1) The $3.9M appropriation to adapt the Fitters’ Workshop is for the purpose of re-locating Megalo Print Workshop to the Fitters’ Workshop.

(2) The Government remains committed to the decision and budget appropriation to relocate Megalo Print Workshop to the Fitters’ Workshop in the Kingston Cultural Precinct.
