Alice Springs Pride Carnivale 2017 Planning Meeting


The Alice Springs Pride Carnivale Organising Committee are proud to announce they are now in their the fifth year. From humble beginnings on an unusually warm first day of winter in June 2013, people gathered from all parts of Australia in a little park by a dry riverbed in a small desert town, and Alice Springs Pride Carnivale was born. Those events were a family-friendly fair day, film festival & 18+ party and was organised in very little time with very little money but with amazing sponsorship from CAAMA Radio & Productions. Five years later, Pride Carnivale has expanded into a three day festival also comprising a launch, art exhibition and workshops & forums with increased attendance numbers and performers.

All Alice Springs Pride Carnivale events are run solely by volunteers and the Organising Committee is now looking for more members. Would YOU like to help with planning?! There are heaps of ways:

❤ PROMOTION & PUBLICITY – organising media releases, newspaper articles & radio ads, making posts & monitoring social media, designing posters & other promotional material, hosting & monitoring the website
❤ FINANCE/TREASURY – writing grants, balancing the budget, paying accounts & receiving income, liaising with the bookkeeper
❤ FUNDRAISING – organising events & activities that FUNdraise and promote Pride Carnivale
❤ PERFORMERS – liaising with & organising travel for people & groups who would like to do performances
❤ SPONSORS – talking with individuals, businesses & associates about donating cash, goods and/or services
❤ ADMIN – preparing agendas & minutes of organising committee meetings, updating & writing policies, monitoring emails, coordinating volunteers
❤ REMOTE COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT – talking with people out bush about Pride Carnivale and seeing how they can be involved
❤ INDIVIDUAL EVENTS – helping out at the launch, art exhibition, workshops & forums, film festival, fair day and/or cabaret party

There will be subcommittees so you may only need to come to those meetings relevant to your subcommittee. The first Organising Committee meeting for 2017 will be held at 5:30 pm on Tuesday 28th February at Red Hot Arts Central Australia (opposite K-Mart). All welcome!

If anyone would like to know more, please message us on Facebook or email alicespringspridecarnivale

We look forward to making this, our fifth year, the most diverse, the most inclusive and the most fabulous Pride Carnivale yet! ❤
