"Creative Art Central is an important action of the Central Coast Cultural Plan and supports the development of innovative and contemporary work across all art-forms.
"The program will commission a variety of new high-quality works that will lead the local industry and enhance our creative identity.
"Creative Art Central has flow on effects for the local economy and a focus on public programs offers the community new opportunities to engage with art and culture on the Coast."
