MANDURAH MLA David Templeman and Lotterywest Greenfields Centre newsagent Linda Brough have presented Mandurah Performing Arts Centre (MPAC) with a $336,000 Lotterywest grant to fund the Mandurah Performing Arts Audience Development Program over three years.

MPAC celebrated its 20th birthday this year and Mr Templeman said it continued to be one of the most active cultural centres in Australia.

“This is a fantastic program that will target marginalised and disadvantaged audiences with support to enable people in several focus areas to attend performing arts either through free or discounted tickets, morning tea for the senior section and promote targeted shows in focus areas,” he said.

“I also want to acknowledge MPAC board members and chairman Rhys Williams who work passionately to bring such wonderful culture and arts products and activity to the Peel region.”
