Kingston Arts Precinct

An experienced consortium has been successful in the tender to develop the Kingston Arts Precinct. 

Following a two stage process, a partnership between Geocon / Fender Katsalidis / Oculus has created an exciting concept for the precinct.

The consortium’s plans include workshops, gallery spaces and offices for arts groups, visiting artist accommodation, landscaped plazas for outdoor entertainment and events, and generous parking provisions. 

Geocon’s submission delivered on the precinct objectives and provided a very good response to all the requirements in the Request for Tender.

The Kingston Arts Precinct has long been envisioned as a visual arts hub, a vibrant destination where locals and visitors gather to enjoy Canberra's creative centre. Arts organisations are proposed to move into the Precinct including Canberra Contemporary Art Space, Craft ACT, Photo Access, Art SoundFM, M16 (including ASOC, CAW, Hands-on, Studio-MAP and the resident artists of M16) and some activities of the Canberra Potters’ Society. Cultural Canberra is continuing consultation with these organisations who will join existing precinct tenants, the Canberra Glassworks, the Old Bus Depot Markets and Megalo print studio.
