Comment on National Indigenous Gallery advisors: ‘Release full report’ by Evelyne Roullet.

What is the real cost of this project: demolition, relocation, closure of art galleries in town = empty shops?
Human costs: Upset residents who will leave because Alice is not their town any longer?
Why come especially to Alice Springs for Aboriginal Art when there are huge collections in all world museums, especially the Vatican.
The seven State and Territory institutions of Australia from Perth to Brisbane all have major collections of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders.
Buying other art from the past will prove expensive; and an Iconic National Indigenous Art Gallery that relies only on future product will surely fail as “an international cultural landmark”. Alice Springs will have to have something UNIQUE! What?

National Indigenous Gallery advisors: ‘Release full report’
“The Chief Minister declaration yesterday that the government preferred site is the Anzac Hill precinct is not yet in the bag. It only opens discussions with other stakeholders. So I hope.”
Relax Maya, by the time they decided, and start to demolish the old Anzac school, South Australia will have built the National Gallery

Anzac Oval will be site for gallery: Gunner
Mister Gunner is playing with words, splitting hair.
Normally a precinct is a building and its boundary like a school precinct: building and playground. Vehicles cannot enter a precinct (except service vehicles).
An oval is a play/sport ground. Part of our oval will become included in the precinct and the rest will be car parks joined to the gallery precinct.
It will not be big enough for a large tourist bus, caravans and the local wishing to park near the CBD.
