A new state-of-the-art creative industries hub at the Central Regional TAFE Geraldton campus has been officially opened by state Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery. The project is the latest to be completed as part of the state government's TAFE infrastructure upgrades. Budding artists, fashion designers and media specialists from across the Mid-West region are now learning at the dynamic creative industries hub, where Central Regional TAFE will deliver its creative industries, visual arts and multimedia training programs. The TAFE's ageing visual arts building has been extended, refurbished and had its roof replaced. It now includes modern art studios, workshops, classrooms and a technology centre. The new facility will be used to deliver training for fashion and textiles, multimedia, photography, graphic design, jewellery making, pottery and glass-making, ensuring students are learning in industry-standard facilities so they graduate job-ready.
