Multicultural and Community Centre in Gungahlin
As part of our plan to make the ACT the best place to live, work and raise a family, the Canberra Liberals will provide $7 million for the Multicultural and Community Centre which will have the capacity for around 1,500 people and will feature commercial kitchens for self-catering of events.
We want to give people a space for cultural expression and celebration. There are currently no facilities in Canberra that offer an affordable venue for large multicultural events.
The new community centre will slash the cost of living pressures for struggling community groups who would be given first preference for low-cost bookings. The community centre would be accessible, centrally located and close to public transport.
The multipurpose Town Hall would be a highly valued asset for around 80,000 people who live in Gungahlin. Gungahlin is a fast-growing community with a significant proportion of its population born overseas, making it the ideal place for this sort of venue.
