There’s was a recent announcement that the government is calling for developers to put forward proposals to develop part of the Kingston Foreshore site as an arts precinct.
One wonders what their perception and concept of what is art precinct. Then there will be the issues that the government is looking for a commercial entity to propose an arts precinct.
Linked to this is that the developer will be working to this particular section of government which has a mixed history and track record on working against locals on developments in Canberra.
I sense all manner of problems. I am hoping this is not another trojan horse. I will be writing about this later.
