Festivals and events
Through the festivals and events sponsorship program, the City aims to support festivals and events that celebrate, develop and engage the city’s communities.
The City provides support for festivals and events under 2 categories:
- Artform-focused festivals and events that provide important contexts for the work of artists, showcase innovation in artform and help build connections between artists and audiences.
- Village and community festivals and events that celebrate the spirit of a community and build opportunities to share its cultural characteristics with a wider public, or events that nurture and amplify the unique characteristics of the city and village precincts, and meet the City’s broader place-making objectives and showcase a local community, including local business.
Please see grants and sponsorship guidelines for expected program outcomes, assessment criteria, and eligibility.
Funding is available for a 1 year program or a program of up to 3 years. New village and community festivals and events can apply for up to $30,000. Funding for established or other festivals and events will be negotiated upon consultation.
