Community Events Workshop

On 7 May, Murrindindi Shire Council held an online community workshop to discuss opportunities for running community events now and when pandemic restrictions are eased.

Over 50 people involved in running events across our Shire participated in the online session, from the safety of their own homes.

During the workshop we discussed new ways to run events while pandemic restrictions are in place, but also to think about what opportunities – and challenges - lie ahead for event organisers as restrictions ease.
