Community Information Sessions
We are holding a series of public information meetings across the district in August.
The purpose of these meetings is to:
- Bring people up to date on what is being planned for the 2021 Festival in terms of the curated events being organised (including how we plan to manage any Covid –19 restrictions);
- Advise those interested in planning an event on registration details, costs etc;
- Introduce our new Festival Producer, Jude Adams;
- Meet members of the Festival board;
- Encourage people to volunteer for the 2021 Festival
- Let people know about the Festival Fleurieu Friends group and how to get involved.
There will be plenty of time for discussion and questions and we’ll be providing tea and coffee at each venue.
As mentioned in the flyer the Visitor Centre are kindly managing registrations for us. It is important to register early as we will be restricted to a maximum number at each venue according to guidelines from SA Health re: numbers of people attending an indoor meeting (this is determined by the actual size of the space at each venue).
We are also required to keep a record of everyone who attends (name, phone and email). This is happening across the state for any indoor public meeting being held. These details will be collected when you register.
The Board are really excited about the Festival starting to take shape and we would be delighted to share our enthusiasm with you through this series of information sessions. We really hope you are able to make it.
Scoping the Youth Scape
Festival Fleurieu was successful in getting a grant from Country Arts SA through the Regional Arts Fund.
The Festival Fleurieu project title is: Youth-Scape 2021- Scoping the Scape, which offers the young people in the District Council of Yankalilla an opportunity to participate in and create work for the 2021 Festival Fleurieu.
Scoping the Scape will investigate and develop a series of youth arts project briefs for the Festival Fleurieu, by discovering the ways in which the young people in our community want to contribute to the festival; and support the creative aspirations of local youth.
The next meeting will be August the 5th.
In July we held our first scoping meetings for the Festival Fleurieu Youth Scape Project.
The Board hopes to see as many people as possible involved in the Youth-Scape project and/or attending one of the four information sessions. The strength of Festival Fleurieu is the engagement and involvement of the local community in this fabulous community event. If you are unable attend one of the information sessions but would like to make contact please email us at email@example.com
Festival Fleurieu is presented by a volunteer not-for-profit Incorporated Association and relies on the creative talents of artists, the time of community volunteers, and the generosity of many festival partners who share a passion for all things Fleurieu.
The leafy sea dragon in our local waters is the festival’s inspiring icon; we acknowledge the need to keep our local environment pristine to protect it from human activity. Though as an endangered species the leafy sea dragon can’t be on show, artists and filmmakers present it in artistic and documentary versions in various exhibitions and venues during the festival.
