The Broken Hill Living Museum + Perfect Light project will unite residents with visitior in Australia's First National Heritage Listed City.
The Project will deliver an ongoing legacy for the Broken Hill community, through directly impacting on local wellbeing and job creation, establishing a foundation for a re-purposed future as this community nears end-of-mine life.
The overall strategy calls for infrastructure to overlay Broken Hill with dynamic urban design and activation to be achieved through technology, art, events and enterprise.
Broken Hill is currently experiencing a gradual population decline and challenges as its mining lifecycle continues to wind down. The effects of the mining decline have placed pressure on economic prosperity and job creation.
This bold and confident vision is critical to Broken Hill in terms of creating a positive purpose for the residents and attracting visitors who can contribute to economic prosperity and jobs – thereby arresting population decline and creating opportunities for equitable participation across all sectors of the community.
The Living Museum + Perfect Light project is a strategic intervention that has been consulted with community and adopted by the Broken Hill City Council (Council), alongside other associated plans and reports that bolster the initiative into a holistic approach. The project captures the essence of Broken Hill and transforms it to compete on a world stage.
This transformation will send a clear message to residents, visitors and investors that Broken Hill is a destination differentiated from all others through its originality, fearlessness, creativity and cultural narrative.
At the June 24, 2015 meeting of Council, the final Broken Hill Living Museum + Perfect Light Project - Urban Design Plan was adopted. Click here to take a look at the plan.
