It’s been a challenging few months for the events sector. The good news is that many organisers have taken an innovative approach and are providing interesting and engaging experiences for the Canberra community, while restrictions on mass assemblies of people are still in place.

RISE Canberra, will help out the events sector and the businesses which rely upon it by supporting and promoting events in the wake of COVID-19.

A RISE Canberra Calendar will be the central point of contact to keep the community connected to local events, while event and activity organisers can promote services and experiences

Submissions for inclusion on the Calendar can be lodged through RiseCanberra.com at any time.

RISE Canberra will also include the Where You Are Festival which will include a program of exciting and vibrant cultural experiences which can be enjoyed Where You Are, while restrictions on mass gatherings are in place.

Canberra’s innovative creators and organisations can apply for funding from the Where You Are Festival through an Expression of Interest process.

The Festival will launch on 10 July 2020 and be rolled out over the following two months.

For more information, go to RISECanberra.com to see the RISE Canberra Calendar and guidelines for listing on the Calendar.
