Zest for Zig Zag fest
30-YEAR-OLD FESTIVAL BEING REDESIGNED
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.
