Expression of Interest to Host 2016 Colac Otway Shire Australia Day Celebrations Open
Council is calling for Expressions of Interest from Community Groups wishing to host the 2016 Australia Day celebrations in their township.

The Australia Day event provides the opportunity for the successful host to showcase their town, local venues, artists and performers to a diverse range residents and visitors.

Colac Otway groups that have the passion and drive to plan, organise and execute the Australia Day event, in partnership with the Colac Otway Shire events team, are encouraged to submit an Expression of Interest for the 2016 Celebrations.
An Expression of Interest to host the 2016 Colac Otway Shire Australia Day Celebrations must include the following components:
1. Completed Application Form

2. A preliminary outline of:
a. Proposed theme
b. Proposed activities (including estimates of costs)
c. Outline of management process (including a list of dates of scheduled group/organisation meetings)
d. Brief outline of the proposed site and venue/s

3. A statement of anticipated community benefits from hosting this event.

The successful application is further required to be involved in the Colac Otway Shire Events Approval Process which addresses risk management and compliance issues specific to the event.

Submissions close at 5pm on Friday 10 April 2015.

For more information please contact Council on 5232 9400.

Tell Everyone About Your Event, Festival or Meeting
Make sure your event is included on the Shire’s Calendar of Events Registering your event gives you free publicity via the this website. A free events listing is also provided to the community via Visitor Information Centres. The calendar is a one stop resource for the local community and is a particularly good reference for event planners who want to ensure their event doesn’t clash with another event. Events can also be listed by clicking "Add Event" in the top right hand corner of the Calendar of Events page. For more information call Vicki Jeffrey on 5232-9516.
