Bellary Springs Community Centre

In 2012 the Bower Studio worked with Gumala Aboriginal Corporation (GAC) in the homeland community of Bellary Springs in Western Australia. Discussion with GAC members at Bellary Springs had indicated the need for a dedicated building to host community functions. There was concern that there was no central gathering place or suitable venue for service providers to carry out health and education programs. Ongoing consultation between the University of Melbourne, GAC and the Bellary Springs community members resulted in the development of the Bellary Springs Community Centre.
