Workshops to equip Broome event organisers
A series of free workshops in June and July will improve the knowledge and skills of those developing and presenting events in Broome.
Community events contribute significantly to Broome’s culture and local economy, and the Shire is partnering with Kimberley Small Business Support and the State Government to present a series of six free Increasing
Local Event Capacity workshops. In 2017 the Shire consulted widely with the community to identify opportunities for events in Broome and the needs of those developing and organising them. Many of Broome’s favourite events are put together by community groups and volunteers, and often by a few experienced members working with several groups across the community. The workshops aim to help them improve their skills and knowledge so they can coordinate successful events that achieve their goals, whether that be fundraising or to engage with the community. Topics include planning, strategy, governance, financial management, marketing, and writing and acquitting funding applications: To find out more head to the Shire website or contact Community Development Officer, Ingrid De Meillon, at (08) 9191 3401 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
