Paul Adcock was in residence at the Broken Hill Art Exchange in 2016. Paul's experience includes Community Development. His project was titled the 'Kitchen Gallery & Heritage Courtyard Development Project'. He provided project and program development assistance for the Kitchen Gallery Project and capacity development in the heritage building to host felt making workshops and exhibitions.
The Kitchen Gallery project involves the renovation of a free standing kitchen from the 1880’s and six sample rooms from the same period. The kitchen and sample rooms are hidden behind the site of the old Grand Hotel on Broken Hill’s main street and are adjacent the town square (Image top right).
The kitchen which once provided a street front bar and upstairs restaurant food for the patrons of The Grand, is being redeveloped as the Kitchen Gallery. The sample rooms, used until the early 1950’s as a base for travelling sales people for display, distribution and as wholesale and as retail outlets are being redeveloped as a display and workshop area.
