Free Community Event Workshops

The City of Greater Geelong is proud to present a series of workshops, funded via the Victorian Government’s Regional Recovery Program. Free to attend, the five sessions will equip event organisers with the knowledge and skills they need to deliver safe and successful events in the Geelong region and to assist with recovery from the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic.

  • maximise your opportunities to receive grant funding
