Currently (as at 2005), the Musgrave Park Cultural Centre is under consturction, in collaboration with the local Indigenous community and the Musgrave Park Cultural Centre Inc.
Musgrave Park is a key place in the Murrin peoples history and culture, so the "Musgrave Park Cultural Centre will provide a space for Indigenous artists to develop and display their skills as well as providing job training opportunities and a neutral site for holding feasts, ceremonies and resolving disputes" (http://www.millenniumarts.qld.gov.au/_mapprojects/musgrave.htm).
"The Centre will have an exhibition and gallery space, conference and training facilities, indoor and outdoor performance areas, separate meeting spaces for men, women and children and a “yarning” circle" (http://www.millenniumarts.qld.gov.au/_mapprojects/musgrave.htm)
Two cultural science research units and four collaborative research centres will be set up in the humanities and social sciences, while nine new collaborative research centres will be established in biology and medicine and three each in the natural sciences and engineering sciences.
The collaborative research centre to be established at the Free University of Berlin to deal with the "Cultures of the performative" will study the function and significance of performative processes and their relation to textuality at times of major changes in communication (in the Middle Ages, early modern age and modernity).
The aim of the newly established collaborative research centre at the Free University of Berlin is to study the "Structure and function of membrane-bound receptors".
Culturalcentres are institutions that emerged in the seventies as new cultural organizations in almost all developed countries of the world (Fache, 1992: 145), but there was always a huge difference between the Western and the Eastern model of culturalcentres.
Analyzing the position of culturalcentres in new cultural and political circumstances, which is a relatively small and limited problem, we have managed, we believe, to reveal the full complexity of the process of restructuring and transformation of cultural policies in the post-socialist European countries.
