Calls For Expression of Interest
The City of Bayswater has adopted a place management approach to activate its four town centres; Maylands, Bayswater, Morley and Noranda. As part of this approach the previous Street Festival grants program has been replaced by a Major Town Centre Events grants program. The funding now has a broader scope to promote not only street festivals but also town centre events and activities attracting more than 2,000 people.
These events can play an important role in activating town centres, by bringing the local community together and creating local identity. The City of Bayswater is inviting expressions of interest from community groups seeking financial and/or in-kind support to deliver major town centre events primarily between January and June 2018. A second call for Expressions of Interest will be opened in January 2018 for events taking place in the second half of 2018.
It is likely a decision on the applications will not be made before mid-November 2017. Interested parties are encouraged to discuss their proposal with the City's Place Managers before submitting the application.
