Our future plans

Geelong Arts Centre Little Malop St Redevelopment

The next stage of the Geelong Arts Centre redevelopment will completely transform the existing Little Malop Street building. Funded by the Victorian Government, the Little Malop Street Redevelopment will significantly expand the capacity of Geelong Arts Centre with multiple new performance venues, an upgraded box office and refurbished back-of-house and administration facilities. More dining options and an outdoor atrium are also being considered in the design.

A clever and creative city the size and vibrancy of Geelong requires cultural assets to match

the growing and changing needs of the city. The Little Malop Street redevelopment will create around 600 construction jobs and more than 300 ongoing local jobs in the tourism and service industries. Work will start in 2020 and be completed by the end of 2023.
