The City of Greater Geelong has announced the Community Events Grant Program to support moderate-sized events, which bring economic benefits to the City, enrich the community, celebrate common interests, and provide opportunities for local participation.
The aim of providing these grants is to support a diverse and inclusive annual calendar of events, which generate economic, social, and creative benefits for the Geelong community.
The grants are available to groups and organizations that deliver event(s) that have a strong focus on social connections, creative and cultural benefits and driving the economy for the City of Greater Geelong community.
The program will partner with events that align with the strategic priorities of Council Plan 2018-2022 and support the community’s clever -creative vision. Partnerships will include funding, value-add event promotion, and may include in-kind support.
What is Community Event?
For this grant program, a community event is a temporary organized activity, open to the general public, where people gather with a common purpose that aims to enhance community life. The activity is held in open spaces, facilities, or venues where there will be more people or different use of the asset than usually found at that location.
