Comment on Recommendations in for National Indigenous Art Gallery site by Gammon.

No to either option. Anzac oval is used by everyone, sports, events (Midnight Oil) etc.
It’s a good looking spot with Anzac Hill and the river. We should keep, it not build some monolithic potential white elephant of an architect’s wet dream there. Why crowd ourselves in?
A much better plan: Build your flash building on the wasteland near the railway line, bang, right on the highway.
You could incorporate a new train station into it, begin the process of taking the freight yards south of The Gap. Then also build on a couple of vacant blocks in town, next door to KFC, old servo opposite Catholic Church, etc and use some if the government buildings in town as specialist galleries for different topics.
It will add value to all the buildings and businesses around them.
Put some bucks into some public art to link these sites through walking trails. Put some dollars into Olive Pink, Pioneer Women’s Hall of Fame, Araluen, Desert Park, also for specialist displays and events.
An amphitheatre at Melanka’s. Bring life to the whole town not just one isolated area.
And please don’t build a space to store expensive collections of art in a flood zone.

Independents now ineffective?
It seems the independents are being a lot more effective in standing up for their community than either the government or the so called opposition.


Anzac Oval will be site for gallery: Gunner
I think many of these pollies today are not so worried about being re-elected, particularly Gunner, Wakefield etc as they have probably lined up jobs with the fracking industry or elsewhere.
It seems the only way to explain some of the ridiculous things they do.
When did Giles start work for Gina Rinehardt, before or after the election? This government is already working for the gas industry rather than the citizens.

Meanwhile the Minister for Families is helping destroy families by talking apparently to only one of the apmereke-artweye and ignoring all the rest of the family. All apmereke-artweye or kwetungurle should be involved and consulted with, listened to, respected etc.

“It is critical that they are partners to the project, whether it is one owner for the site or not because there is a range of issues.”
One thinks it would be critical for traditional owners to be partners too, not feeling alienated and disrespected as they are now and as are many in the broader community.
There are a range of issues and people that the government are choosing to ignore.


Boundless Arrogance, says Opposition
Boundless arrogance just like the CLP. Vote independent.
