ART, DESIGN AND MUSIC
Creative hub launch offers treat for the senses
The capital region's newest centre of
arts, design and music is soon to
launch at Benedict House.
The Benedict Arts Precinct will
spring into action on Saturday,
September 13, giving at the launch
event a taste of the best in local art,
music and regional cuisine.
Custodians of Benedict House Rory
and Jess Markham said as the
preparations for the launch got under
way, Benedict House and the adjoining
property, which houses the Lost and
Found Office and Artists Shed studios,
was being transformed into a creative
hub for all art forms.
"We wanted to create a new
experience for visitors to the region,
combining great food, historic
ambience and exciting art and design,
all set within the building and grounds
of this spectacular former convent,"
Mrs Markham said.
The launch event offers local
cuisine from the Benedict House
restaurant, tours through the historic
buildings, refurbished rooms curated
by the Lost and Found Office and
resident artists studios.
There will be a public talk hosted by
master furniture craftsman Evan
Dunstone and live music.
