National Gallery for Jersey Strategic Plan 2008
The report sets out a vision for a National Gallery for Jersey, examining the physical requirements in terms of space and facilities, the benefits of a gallery and the likely extent of financial support required to take the project forward.
It explores the value of a gallery as part of the cultural fabric of the Island, it considers its relevance to education, to our ideas of identity and to increasing the cultural offering for visitors.
The report proceeds on the basis of the feasibility work undertaken on the Weighbridge site,and notes that this particular site provides both the ideal space for such a facility and a location which will maximise visits by the public. The steering group does not say that there is no alternative site which would be viable but it does advocate measuring any such alternatives against the criteria set out in the report.
