Welcome to the incredible Red Earth Arts Precinct; a facility that will be a permanent home for arts and culture, right here in the heart of our City. This precinct is a game-changer for our region, providing a 450+ seat theatre, rooftop cinema, outdoor amphitheatre and state-of-the-art library space. Innovative and unique, the Red Earth Arts Precinct will be a focal point for our community, a place to share our creativity and showcase the City to a wider audience.
Architecturally this building is one of a kind, reflecting the Karratha hills that overlook it – a statement piece as you enter Karratha. Technologically the precinct exceeds expectations, providing the same systems and equipment you would find in a much larger metropolitan area.
Once again I would like to extend my sincere thanks to our funding partners on behalf of the City of Karratha. Construction of this facility would not have been possible without the support of the Australian Government through the National Stronger Regions Fund, the State Government through the Royalties for Regions program administered by the Pilbara Development Commission, the Woodside-operated North West Shelf Project, Rio Tinto and Lotterywest.
The Red Earth Arts Precinct is a destination and I am very pleased to invite you to visit us and to explore our website.
Mayor, City of Karratha
