Give your project a helping hand.

If your event could use an extra bit of dosh, you’re in luck. The City of Melbourne is now accepting applications for sponsorship or in-kind support through its Event Partnership Program (EPP).

The EPP aims to help stage events throughout Melbourne with the goal to cement the city as Australia’s event capital. In the past, the City of Melbourne has supported multicultural festivals, sports events, food and wine festivals and music nights.

To be eligible, your event has to take place within the City of Melbourne municipality sometime within 2020 and be predominantly free. The event funding round closes at the end of the month, so be sure to jump on this opportunity before it’s too late.

Applications for the City of Melbourne’s Event Partnership Program close on Monday July 29. More information can be found on the EPP site.
