SUBIACO councillors will decide on Tuesday what events will receive See Subiaco funding.

Seven external event producers, along with one City event, were assessed and have either an officer recommendation to approve funding or to not receive funding.

Events recommended for approval include Subiaco’s Christmas Event, Bonjour Perth and Unwined Subiaco.

Edge Outside Broadcasts, Subiaction Long Table Dinner, Revelation Film Festival and the Elected Member candidate Q & A were not recommended for funding.

Each event was chosen based on whether it had the ability to meet the City’s See Subiaco event criteria and Key Performance Indicator’s (KPI).

City criteria included the event’s ability to attract foot traffic, increase positive media exposure for Subiaco and that City, increase local business involvement and to activate Subiaco spaces.

“We’ve done an assessment and we’re recommending only the ones found in the report,” Director Corporate Services Scott Hawkins said.

“Some met criteria and some didn’t – depending on what they were they may be funded through an alternative source.”
