Creating vibrant central hubs as well as hosting events play an important role in ensuring everyone can participate in a wide range of arts, cultural, sporting, recreational and social opportunities. This contributes to making our towns more appealing and welcoming places to live, work and visit.

Activation and events connect our communities and illuminate our rich tapestry of places, cultures, and talents. They showcase the beauty of our natural environment and attractions, and help to highlight our towns as visitor destinations.

The Shire plays a dual role in organising and producing activations and events, as well as sponsoring and supporting them. Activations and events can be led by community groups and clubs, resident groups, town team movements or even businesses, so we’d like to hear your ideas and understand what’s important to you.

What are we doing?

The Shire is developing an Activation and Events Strategy that will outline how we connect and invigorate central spaces, local community hubs and public facilities over three years. It will also help to attract significant and diverse events, and establish an annual calendar that encourages increased tourism and spending to local businesses.

The Strategy will celebrate the special characteristics of Newman, Marble Bar and Nullagine, animate key local areas, and create a sense of belonging and pride in the community. Importantly, it will also celebrate diversity, enhance access, encourage inclusion, and improve collaboration between the Shire and the community.
