Ballarat, the new home to a National Centre for Photography

A win for the regions – $6.7 million investment by the Andrews Labor Government to develop the National Centre For Photography has been announced for Ballarat.

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.
