Over $2 million in funding for arts and cultural projects has been approved for Lake Macquarie.
Lake Macquarie MP Greg Piper has announced the first round of grants made under the NSW Government's $100m Regional Cultural Fund.
The funding is allocated for an extension of Lake Macquarie City Art Gallery and the development of a Multi-Arts Space at Speers Point.
Greg Piper said "This is a fabulous outcome for the council and I know these projects will bring a great deal of joy to the people of Lake Macquarie."
"This is a fantastic boost to arts and culture, not just for Lake Macquarie but the entire Hunter Region and reflects a real local vision to establish a strong cultural identity," he said.
