Minister for Tourism and Culture
Territorians have until the end of this week to provide feedback on the first phase of consultation on the new Museum of the Northern Territory.
“The Territory Labor Government is investing in our arts and cultural assets because we know they attract more visitors, provide a boost to the economy and create local jobs,” Minister for Tourism and Culture, Lauren Moss said.
“As a Government, we promised to listen and then act and that is what we are doing through this consultation on the new Museum of the Northern Territory, which is part of revitalising the Darwin CBD.”
Workshops and pop-up stalls have been held in Darwin, Tennant Creek, Katherine and Alice Springs.
Nationally acclaimed, award-winning architects troppo and ARM Architecture joined with Darwin Corporate Communications to lead the community consultation program ahead of the design and development of the new Museum.
Darwin Corporate Communications Principal Consultant, Dan Hall said consultation to date had been detailed and valuable and he wants Territorians to provide their thoughts and ideas over the final days of the consultation.
“From community input, the troppo+ARM team anticipate delivering for the community a (well-fitting) scoping study, detailed brief, and illustrative (and inspiring) concept designs for the new Museum,” Mr Hall said.
When complete the consultation report will outline, but is not limited to:
what is unique about the Northern Territory
ways to create a rich visitor experience for locals, interstate and international visitors and return visitation
use of the site including landscape areas to deliver broad public amenity
opportunity for events and social activity to enhance the vitality of the City
opportunity for partnerships with the community including education, commercial and tourism sectors
how the Museum can reach out and interact with the whole Territory.
Feedback can be provided until this Friday, 17 November through the Have Your Say website at http://www.haveyoursay.nt.gov.au/museumoftheNT.
Feedback can also be emailed to the consultation team, email firstname.lastname@example.org
