Community Group - EXPRESSION OF INTEREST 2022/2023

Council is seeking Expressions of Interest from community organisations to co-host Movies in the Park from February 2022 - April 2023. Movies in the Park are free, family friendly events that foster community connection in townships across the Gympie region.

To be eligible to co-host, your organisation must be:

  • If successful, nominate 2 movie preferences from the catalogue provided by Council.
  • Promote the event locally (e.g. putting up posters, sharing social media posts).

Council will:

  • Create a promotional flyer for your organisation to distribute.
  • Market the event through Council’s media channels.
  • Pay for the projectionist to screen the movie.
  • Arrange the Permit for Public Space or Park Booking (if applicable).
