When

Thursday 13 August 2020 from 12pm to 1pm

You are invited to an online briefing session to discuss the current round of City of Sydney grants available to support the activation of Sydney CBD and Haymarket area.

The Sydney CBD has been particularly hard hit by COVID-19 regulations enforcing social distancing. Businesses located in the CBD have lost the patronage of thousands of workers, as well as the many tourists that normally visit throughout the year. Creative and cultural practitioners and enterprises have also been greatly affected by the pandemic.

The new CBD Activation Matching Grant is to encourage collaborative initiatives between businesses and creatives.

At this briefing, you will also learn about other grants that might be relevant for your business.

 Who is this briefing session for

  • Artists and creatives with performance/activation ideas

  • CBD and Haymarket based businesses with space to activate (indoors and outdoors)

Event program

  • Idea pitches from artists and creative producers looking for a venue/space

  • Pitches from venue owners looking for activation ideas for their space

  • Presentations on

  • Examples of successful past initiatives

  • Breakout sessions with planners to brainstorm ideas on what’s possible, and for small businesses to connect with creatives.

  • Q&A session

Event registration

Please register to attend.

When you register you will be asked if you would like to submit a ‘pitch’ document, which can be shown at the event or passed onto others who wish to find a partner to work with for the activation. Please note it is not essential to submit a 'pitch' in order to attend the briefing.

If you would like to produce a 'pitch', it can be submitted preferably in video format no more than 60 seconds in length. In the ‘pitch’ please provide details of who you are, what type of activation you are interested in and who you wish to collaborate with.
