A new National Centre For Photography (NCFP) has been given the greenlight by the Andrews Labor Government. It was announced last week (17 November) that a $6.7 million investment has been approved for the regional town of Ballarat, Victoria.
Three years into its Creative City Strategy, Ballarat has reason to celebrate. ‘This marked an incredible day for Ballarat,’ said Fiona Sweet, Artistic Director of the Ballarat International Foto Biennale (BIFB). ‘And one that we have been working towards for well over two years.’
