BONJOUR Perth, the Subiaco Christmas Event and Unwined Subiaco have been given the green light to receive See Subiaco funding.

Councillors agreed at a council meeting on Tuesday night to allocate $60,000 in funding for the Subiaco Christmas event, $10,000 to Bonjour Perth and $12,500 for Unwined Subiaco.

Four events failed to receive See Subiaco funding including Edge Outside Broadcasts, Subiaction Long Table Dinner, Revelation Film Festival and the Elected Member candidate Q & A.

The Economic and Business Sustainability Advisory Committee (EBSAC) assessed the funding requests and approved them based on the applicants ability to meet criteria.

Events deemed successful had the ability to attract foot traffic into Subiaco, increase positive media exposure for the City, increase local business involvement in the event and to activate Subiaco spaces.
