We want to thank everyone for their generous donations to our crowd funding campaign. We’ve now reached over $3000 – every bit helps! The GoFundMe page is being closed at this time, but as always the centre accepts donations through our own website, if you would like to make a tax deductible donation, please click here.
The Centre is currently operating at much reduced capacity. We still have three part-time staff, but are no longer able to open the office four days a week. At present the office is officially closed as we deal with the move as well as preparations for a new funding application to Arts Tasmania. Staff will not be able to respond quickly to enquiries, but will do so as best they can. We hope to be able to open again for limited hours very soon.
Membership payments are currently suspended, but if you’re a member, your membership won’t lapse. We will let everyone know when we’re able to resume payments and invite you to join up or renew – hopefully soon.
Right now we are in the middle of moving the office. The Hobart City Council have generously offered us office space at their building on the corner of Davey and Elizabeth Streets for ‘peppercorn’ rent. The move is well underway and we thank the board and many volunteers who’ve been helping and will continue to do so over the next few weeks as we settle into the new space. Look out for a special opening event!
