We’re super excited to let you know that we will have a new school building in 2014. Brisbane City planning approval arrived this week and this means we can move ahead with the purchase of 38 Berwick Street Fortitude Valley and start the process of turning it into a state of the art facility that will help us deliver an even better educational experience for our students.
The history and location of the new building is also a strength. The building was owned by the original drummer for Regurgitator and has played host to recording sessions by iconic Brisbane bands Powderfinger and the Go Betweens as well as a host of others. We are both happy and proud that MIC can play a part in continuing the strong musical history of the site.
The location is right in the heart of Brisbane’s music and arts community. We share a street address with the Judith Wright Arts Centre, The Institute of Modern Art, Youth Arts Queensland, BIGSOUND music conference, and Foot Stomp Music (Warner Music) and we are just a short walk from The Zoo, QMusic, APRA/AMCOS, Tym’s Guitars, and a host of other music industry businesses.
A copy of the plans is below and we’d like you to have a look over them as we know you will become as excited about this project as we are.
