Central Coast Council congratulates the management and board at The Art House for winning both the Excellence in Large Business and Wyong Business of Year Award at the Wyong Business (Chamber of Commerce) 2022 Annual Business Awards event recently – providing recognition of the high quality of programs and services delivered and valuable contribution this arts and cultural hub delivers for our community.
The Art House Executive Director, Anne-Marie Heath said it is an honour to receive these awards for excellence from the local business community.
“Our team is very proud and grateful to receive Business Wyong’s Excellence in Large Business Award, but most of all we were completely surprised and excited to have also received the main award of Business of the Year!” Ms Heath said.
“It is very rewarding that The Art House is recognised for its service to the community as an arts organisation but as also for our business operations.
“These awards are reflective of the wonderful Art House staff and their contribution and commitment in ensuring the Art House is shining in every moment, and the great support of the Board.”
Central Coast Council Administrator, Rik Hart said The Art House is an exciting performing arts centre which brings world-class performances to local audiences and attracts visitors to our region.
“The success of The Art House creates a ripple effect of economic benefits for our community with the provision of local jobs, which leads to more local business spending, and support to surrounding hospitality businesses from audiences that come from near and far,” Mr Hart said.
“The management and staff of The Art House provide excellence in service and programming that matches the architectural distinction of the venue, and I’m delighted for the team on their well-deserved wins.”
The Art House is owned by Council and managed by an independent not-for-profit entity with an independent board of directors.
