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 in­grid.de­meil­lon@broome.wa.gov.au.
