Sunshine Coast Regional Council is seeking your ideas, interest and participation in helping to make the Caloundra Music Festival even more engaging, community focussed and successful! Based in Kings Beach, the festival is fast becoming a showcase for the whole Sunshine Coast region and community.

You are invited to attend one of four regional community forums in June to develop ideas, partnerships and outcomes for local communities within the festival.

Anticipated Outcomes
* Gather your ideas about how to build upon the great community outcomes from the first two festivals
* Gather your ideas for projects, programs and activities at the festival
* Showcase the festival organisers ideas for projects and programs at the festival
* Link community organisations, schools, groups, businesses
* Share information about applying for council grants to help you get involved in the festival

Who should come?
Community Groups, School Students, Teachers, School Parents & Friends, Organisations, Individuals, Businesses, Artists, Musicians, Performers

Why should you come?
Council is hoping to build community outcomes by linking community groups, schools and businesses into productive creative partnerships. For example, a business may provide resources for lantern making. A community organisation may apply to council to engage professional lantern makers. The lantern makers work with the community group and within local schools to develop skills and resources that make the festival even more fun and engaging. At the festival the school / community group charges a gold coin donation and makes an income from their participation. Whether you are an individual, school student, teacher, parent, part of a community group or a local business, this process may provide you with some great outcomes and capacity building opportunities.
