Festivals and events are an integral part of the heart and culture of our city. Wyndham’s new Festival and Events Framework seeks to provide Council with clear directions for its planning, delivery, decision-making and support for festivals and events across the municipality.
The aim of the Framework is:
To enable the delivery of festivals and events to build a strong community, both socially and economically, and a vibrant, liveable city inclusive of all.
This framework provides a contextual overview for Wyndham, including the benefits of festivals and events, and Council’s roles within them. It outlines, across four key objectives, the issues, opportunities and strategic directions for each objective, together with the specific actions that Council will take over the next two years to progress these.
The key objectives of the framework are:
- To build a diverse portfolio of events and festivals in Wyndham for now and for the future.
- To ensure events and festivals support the development of a strong economy in Wyndham and to facilitate the attraction of a range of events and festivals to the city that target visitors.
- To plan, develop and maintain accessible and appropriate infrastructure and event spaces across the city.
- To build capacity and support for the quality delivery of events and festivals.
