Kalamunda Reporter - - Front Page -

KALAMUNDA’S Zig Zag Fes­ti­val is set to be big­ger and bet­ter in 2018. Or­gan­is­ers Al­bert Haze­broek, Gail Camp­bell and Celia Ch­effins want to hear from our read­ers on how to re­ju­ve­nate the 30-year-old event.

KALAMUNDA’S Zig Zag Fes­ti­val will be big­ger and bet­ter in 2018, with or­gan­is­ers call­ing on the com­mu­nity to have their say on how to re­ju­ve­nate the 30-year-old event.

This year, for just the sec­ond time in its his­tory, the Zig Zag Fes­ti­val was can­celled due to a lack of vol­un­teers. Fes­ti­val or­gan­is­ers Zig Zag Com­mu­nity Arts have teamed up with Up­Beat Events to de­sign a re­vi­talised event for the com­mu­nity in Oc­to­ber next year.

Zig Zag Arts chair­man Al­bert Haze­broek said there was a need to make sure the fes­ti­val con­tin­ued by giv­ing at­ten­dees the best ex­pe­ri­ence.

“We want to know what the Zig Zag Fes­ti­val means to peo­ple, how we can make it bet­ter and how they might like to be more in­volved,” he said.

“A sur­vey is the best way for the peo­ple of Kalamunda to let us know what they think of the Zig Zag Fes­ti­val, what they like about it, how it could be im­proved, why they came along – and how we could get more peo­ple to par­tic­i­pate in the event.”

Event co-or­di­na­tor Celia Ch­effins said the sur­vey would be dis­trib­uted through­out the com­mu­nity, with the re­sults to help the com­mit­tee grow and shape the event into some­thing bet­ter for more peo­ple to en­joy.

“We know it is also a pop­u­lar event for vis­i­tors to the re­gion, which is why every­one is in­vited to com­plete the sur­vey,” she said.

Res­i­dents and busi­ness own­ers are en­cour­aged to have their say at a spe­cial con­sul­ta­tion evening to be held at the Kalamunda Club on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 13, from 6pm to 8pm. Sub­mis­sions close Novem­ber 20.
