Midland Junction Arts Centre

Electorate: Hasluck

Cost: $3.7 million

Project Overview

Opened in 1904 as a technical school, the Midland Junction Arts Centre (MJAC) is an important heritage asset and a valuable community building.

The MJAC building now serves as an exhibition area for local artists.

Featuring three generous gallery spaces, the venue offers an intimate, 100 seat auditorium, a courtyard, office spaces and rehearsal and printing studios.

Unfortunately, time has taken its toll and a refurbishment of this heritage building is urgently required to provide a safe and fit-for-purpose venue.

The City has funded and completed the replacement of the roof on the building, as well as the refurbishment of some of the rooms.

A Federal Government funding commitment is sought to help further refurbish and preserve the MJAC and improve facilities available to the local community.
