ANZAC Oval art gallery good for Mall traders: Chamber

2533 Anzac Highschool SM

 

A claim by the Darwin based Chamber of Commerce CEO, Greg Bicknell, that the National Aboriginal Art Gallery should be built in the ANZAC Oval precinct, is short on documentation.

Spend NT Budget money urgently, says Chamber of Commerce

 

Restraints in the Territory Budget are possibly necessary, but those infrastructure projects that are included should proceed immediately to aid the ailing economy of Alice Springs, says Chamber of Commerce CEO Kay Eade. ERWIN CHLANDA reports.

Chamber flicks arts & cultural centre project to underachiever Tourism NT

A committee of the Alice Springs Chamber of Commerce has hand balled the proposal for a national indigenous art and culture center to Tourism NT, which appears to have put it on the back burner.

Liz Martin, who runs the highly successful National Road Transport Hall of Fame in Alice Sprigs, says the town may lose a major opportunity to Queensland where she understands a similar project is being mooted, apparently assisted by major mining interests.
"We should grab it by the horns and run with it," says Cr Martin who serves on the town council's Tourism, Events and Promotion Committee and was its chair person for the last three years of the 11th Council.
Says Tourism NT CEO John Fitzgerald: "Tourism NT has not taken over planning of the proposed centre."
