Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: For Sale: Moral compass

Some weeks it’s hard to navigate the big feelings I have around injustice; the kind of injustice that occurs every day, everywhere, underwritten by the privilege of some at the expense of the many. The shit stuff people get away with! The shit stuff no one notices. Shit stuff always happens to people who don’t have much to start with. I sometimes wonder how you can hear story after story and not realise the system is broken. Capitalism sucks. Let’s go break stuff – like, the dominant paradigm! We haven’t managed to subvert it – so can we smash it into tiny pieces? Please?

Event organisers interested in staging an event which will help the community reconnect are invited to submit their applications for Council’s 2022-2023 Events Sponsorship funding round now. Applications close on Friday 8 July 2022. Photo supplied.

With disasters like fires, floods and pandemics, still smouldering in our recent memory, Tweed Shire Council wants to know if you have an event that will help the Tweed community reconnect and celebrate after tough times?

Council says that event organisers are encouraged to consider applying for Tweed Shire Council’s 2022-2023 Events Sponsorship funding round to stage an event and give people the opportunity to re-connect and celebrate.

Council has previously supported a range of events including sport, food, music and the arts.

The 2022-2023 Events Sponsorship funding round is now open and will close at midnight on Friday, 8 July, 2022.

Council’s Events Officer Kerrie McConnell said the sponsorship round gives people the opportunity to revisit the idea of a live event. ‘With gatherings few and far between over the last couple of years, it is time for us to start to re-connect safely with our community through events,’ says Ms McConnell.

Applications must be from an incorporated body or an event that has a sponsor who will accept legal and financial responsibility for the event.

Before completing the application form, Councul asks that you read the Events Sponsorship Policy on Council’s website and register on SmartyGrants to view the Events Sponsorship Guidelines, as they outline the core eligibility criteria and conditions of funding.

Council will consider eligible applications at its meeting in August. Full or partial or no funding may be recommended by Council and all applicants will be advised of the outcome of their application.

For further information and to apply, visit the Council website for information on Event funding and sponsorship or call Council’s Events Officer, Kerrie McConnell on 02 6670 2735.
