CPAC named as finalist in Business Excellence Awards
The Cessnock Performing Arts Centre (CPAC) has been named a finalist in the 2018 Hunter Region Business Excellence Awards, highlighting its important role in our local community.
Since opening in 2008, the centre has developed a strong reputation as it draws its audience from the Cessnock Local Government Area and further afield from areas including Singleton, Maitland, Newcastle and Lake Macquarie.
Not only does the CPAC offer a fantastic program of performances throughout the year, the team is also committed to working closely with the community.
CPAC is home to the Cessnock Senior Citizens Association, The Australian Decorative and Fine Arts Society, Hunter Drama and works with a number of local schools and dance schools to present their major performances and concerts.
“We have a strong focus on engaging children and families by producing events that are innovative, exciting and aimed at bringing our community together to celebrate who we are,” said CPAC Coordinator, Vicki Sienczuk.
“The centre is also responsible for producing major events on behalf of Council, such as Spring Awakening, Carols in the Park and Australia Day as well as partnering with other Council departments for NAIDOC week, Seniors Festival and Youth Week.”
“Being a finalist in the Hunter Business Excellence Awards is very exciting and we are all honoured to be recognised in this way,” added Vicki.
This will be the 25th year these prestigious awards have taken place and the Gala Dinner celebration will be held at Club Maitland City in Rutherford on Friday 21 September 2018.
