Consultation With Pazzazz


Arts and Culture enthusiasts along with the wider Bass Coast community are invited to an entertaining night out to discuss the potential for the Wonthaggi Union Community Arts Centre (WUCAC).

Dripping with history dating back to the early mining days in Wonthaggi, WUCAC was rebuilt in 1982 after a significant fire destroyed the previous building.

Since then, WUCAC has undergone several changes and is now a high priority for Bass Coast Shire Council for consideration for an upgrade to both the building and its operations.

Supporting Council’s intent to understand WUCAC’s importance in developing a vibrant Bass Coast, Mayor, Cr Kimberly Brown, believes the evening will provide the community with a great opportunity to share their aspirations for the centre.

“Council has committed to a considerable business study project for WUCAC as we regard it as having wide reaching benefits to the whole Bass Coast community,” Cr Brown said.

“We have engaged the preeminent experts in this area to work on the project – Outside the Square Creative Consulting and James Buick of Oh Your Beautiful Stage.”

“Word has it that the night will be full of entertainment, while allowing for productive dreaming and conversation,” Cr Brown added.

The evening will be staged at WUCAC, 96 Graham Street Wonthaggi from 6.30pm until 9.00pm on Tuesday, 25 August.

Light refreshments will be available upon arrival.

All groups are encouraged to be represented on the night including schools, churches, and theatre, arts, dance, film, music and sporting groups, along with families and interested community individuals and audiences.

Due to the popularity of the venue and interest within the community, RSVPs for catering are required. To RSVP, please email C.Wutzke@basscoast.vic.gov.au or call 1300 BCOAST (226 278) or (03) 5671 2211.
