Since the state of emergency was declared in Victoria in March 2020, Working Heritage has negotiated rent relief for our lessees across the sixteen heritage properties in our care.
As a self-funded not-for-profit, we have foregone crucial income to assist our tenants' survival though this unprecedented crisis. We are hopeful that Victoria’s collective effort to reduce infection rates will succeed and that recovery of community, cultural and business activity can soon commence, and ultimately succeed.
We look forward to visiting all of our tenants again and to seeing their businesses recover and thrive.
Lots of creative endeavours took place at Warracknabeal Court House late 2019, as part of the reactivation project in partnership with Monash University (MADA) and the Yarriambiack Shire.
The goal of the reactivation projec t is to initiate a cultural precinct for Warracknabeal and the surrounding region. It aims to increase community participation and engagement in civic activity, create new economic opportunities and stimulate cultural diversity through the various ventures sited at the court house.
The focus for Stage 1 works will be accessibility and compliance with occupancy requirements. It will incorporate additions to the existing building in the form of an access ramp and accessible toilet, as well as reconfiguing the interior spaces in order to create:
> a working studio area
> flexible community space
> short-term accommodation for artists and visitors
> a study and kitchenette
As of Tuesday 17 March 2020, Working Heritage staff will be working remotely and at the office on a rotation system. We are following government guidelines in relation to COVID-19.
Our thoughts are with everyone affected by the global pandemic, whether it be directly or indirectly.
